Thanks @harvs. I'm doing quite well. I have a positive frame of mind and a very positive attitude and I plan on being one of the long term survivors. But those thoughts do still enter my mind daily. I had my 1 year check up and have been called back to go in for more scans in May because of a "spot" on my good boob. Bugger it! I'll be fine - So what if I lose my boob. At least I'll be even then.
I had heard of her through a private facebook support group I'm in. She was mentioned about 4-6 weeks ago and it came out then that she never had cancer. I hadn't really heard of her before then, but there are plenty of women in the group that swear by clean eating (in addition to medical intervention ie chemo and radio). But cancer is one of those things - it's either going to get you or not - regardless of what you eat. There are millions of really unhealthy, morbidly obese, wouldn't know what a vegetable or fruit in it's true form looks like that don't get cancer. It's the luck of the draw.

I didn't even know who this woman was before I read the article. Personally that's probably why I'm non emotive about it like ok I can go woah she's a bad person yeah… But and here's the but… I think society creates it's own monsters.
I can rattle off a list of big profile Mum bloggers who I have known personally and they aren't quite nearly as magical as their large legion of followers would believe. But the truth is their secret personas are very obvious just either people don't notice or they don't want to because they like to look up and admire someone.
For this very reason I don't look up to anyone high profile… I just don't. I know people lie, people are fake. In fact it's the people who are seemingly unbalanced that I trust way more than super nice people. It's the internet a place that's easier to cover your tracks than irl.

@Life is Good
I agree with you - it doesnt matter so much what you eat, how much you excercise or what you do .... those things affect your quality of life, but at the end of the day, the meds and fate will decide if you survive or if you dont.
I have luekaemia, and have lived with that for 7 years now. Taking chemo type medication every day, living with the side effects and the changes to my life that has made .... and knowing that it doesnt really matter what I do or dont do ... there is nothing I can do to make my body respond to the drugs or not ...
Eating healthier, exercising properly, relaxing and de-stressing etc - they are all good and will help me cope with side effects and other related issues - but they do not affect the disease itself or whether or not the drugs will work.
Playing on peoples emotions like this woman has done - but worse than that, ripping off cancer patients for personal financial gain - its just such a low act.

I think she's a stupid b!tch who has no idea about what Cancer is really like.

What she has is likely to be on the DSM-V but I think she is bad not mad.

She is absolutely repugnant in my eyes. Preying on the vulnerable for personal profit.
