I put a blog together a few weeks ago and have gone back and forth trying to decide if I should share it. I started this because when I was diagnosed with breast cancer I looked around the waiting room at my oncologist’s office and felt completely out of place. I was surrounded by women in their 50s, 60s, and 70s. In the days that followed I scoured Instagram for other 20-somethings with cancer like mine. I wanted to know how they got through it, what their treatment looked like, and what I could do to make my cancer diagnosis a little bit easier. I found so much comfort in what I saw and now that I’m going through treatment I want to pay it forward and document my journey for the next woman whose life is turned upside down by breast cancer. If you’re interested, the link is in my profile. I’ve got 3 posts up and will keep documenting from here! I hope it can give someone some clarity in encouragement someday ☺️

So 18 years ago today we lost this absolute legend my beautiful Mum Sue Paxman. She is the legacy behind @scalpcooling and the reason why 100,000’s of people around the world have kept their hair during their Chemotherapy treatment. You were completely devastated when you lost yours during your Chemo and I will never forget the day we stood in your bathroom and I cut it all off for you. It’s an absolute tragedy that you died so young Mum at 44 but what a legacy you have left behind, so let’s all say a huge thank you, thank you Mum for paving the way for us to be able to help so many people around the world to ‘Live with Cancer’ as we are ‘Changing The Face Of Cancer’ Love you and miss you every single day you beautiful human being 💗💗💗💗 #paxman#suepaxman#legend#scalpcooling#global#livewithcancer#changingthefaceofcancer
The questions everyone is asking is all about chemo and how lucky I am to keep my hair. ..
How on earth can you keep your hair during chemo? This is a picture of me sitting in the chemo chair wearing my super cool scalp cooling helmet. ..
The @scalpcooling cools my head to 17 degrees (which means it’s like a nice summers day in England). But by cooling the cells they close up and the chemo doesn’t get inside the scalp and your hair doesn’t fall out. ..
Paxman is an incredible company, allowing people going through chemo to keep their identity. It’s amazing technology and I will forever be grateful that this was offered to me!. #paxman#chemokid#onthursdayswewearpink#keepthehair#savetheblonde#scalpcooling#unbelievabletechnology#breastcancer#cancer#cancersurviver
Grateful to say I achieved my goal to get my own French horn before age 20🎉 1/2 dreams came true, the second one will never come true💔 #Paxman#23m#doublehorn#music

So this happened 💔
I had really feared it and hoped I would be able to keep my hair. After all, I’ve been using a #coldcap during all my treatments so far. And with the chemo I’m getting I had a big chance that it would be successful and the nurses told me that I probably only would experience some shedding.
But I wasn’t that lucky 😢
Especially the last three days I’ve been throwing away handfuls like this several times a day.
I took this picture after collecting the hair that had fallen out after gently running my fingers through my hair the other morning. I went from really thick hair to really thin hair in just a few days and the itching and hair pain became worse every day.
The thinning only started to show in my neck and around the ears where the cooling cap didn’t reach though (do I have that big of a head?) so I wasn’t that worried.
It gave me the weirdest chemo undercut (pic 2), but yeah 🙈
But yesterday I noticed that the hairs started to come out from all over my head. No chunks though, just #thinningbutstillwinning 🤪
But today the chemo won. I washed my hair and huge clumps started to come out 😢 I put a massive amount of deep conditioner in my hair and tried to very gently comb the loose hairs out with a wide tooth comb, but they kept coming and coming. I could’ve continued until I was bald.
But my brother and his girlfriend were coming by, so I just stepped out of the shower, gave the hair a little squeeze with a soft shirt and let my hair air dry.
But since there were so many loose hairs, the hair started knotting and matting while drying. It had basically become two giant dreadlocks. And not the pretty kinds.
So I’ve decided that I’m going to cut it all off tomorrow ✂️ It hurts, but I guess it’s a part of the process I need to go through. And I keep reminding myself that it’s ‘just’ hair and that it will grow back. I’ve never had shorter than shoulder length hair though, and it’s going to take soooo long until it’s at my pre-cancer boob-length again.
It really sucks, but I’m far from the only woman going through this.
I’m thinking of maybe recording it and sharing it on my insta story.
Yes/No? 💇🏻♀️ #myboobcancerjourney
Both fun and challenging (in a good way!) being interviewed by these two and discussing all things Art. All part of the preparations for October's 'Roy's Art Fair' at The Truman Brewery in Brick Lane.
Don't be fooled by the nice faces...it was a Paxman style grilling!
He got a much needed haircut this morning and he sure does look mighty handsome! #paxtonriver#paxman

BOWLING UPDATE!!! So last night I attended the King of the hill, bowled on the 35’ boardwalk pattern. I was in my head a lot and had a very bad attitude on the lanes, balls I threw just weren’t working out for me and missed a lot of spares. Took it as a learning experience and just got to be more confident in myself when the lanes get really tough.
Today however was a much better day! Attended the JBST fantasy draft and was selected to be a captain! All captains were not given names of the bowlers who attended, but only their statistics. I ended getting 3 really good and friendly bowlers. We as a team went +8 for 3 games and then +100 for the baker part of the tournament and took the final spot for match play! Our first match went extremely well! Shot 471 for 2 baker games and moved on! Final match was all about carry and spares. We were very lucky enough to have the lucky carry on our side and didn’t have to deal with any nasty washouts or splits and took home the gold!
I was extremely lucky with the picks I made! We all had a great time, gave each other so much support to give ourselves every chance we could get! Shoutout to my boy “PAX-MAN” he was my final pick and he was..in my opinion, THE BEST PICK I EVER MADE! he is only 10 years old and fought all day to give himself a chance to win and our team to win big! I’m extremely proud of you my man! I know you are going to be a very successful bowler when you get older! YOU ARE THE TROPHY🏆
Myself today threw the Storm Bowling Byte all day! Started off alittle slow, but came back strong during the baker games!
Very proud of how everything went today! I had a really good time with everything and hopefully I get to see my draft teammates more often when I go bowl!
By the way, our team name was “Storm Swirls” because we all like Storm products and we like to swirl the ball😂

I mean, I just want to freeze time, he is just too much 🤗💕!! #lastdayofschool#summerbreak#paxman#growingup
This from May 2015 💓
Our airport transfer was a boat taxi because we escaped to Venice. This mini break was a last minute attempt at catching our breaths following 5.5 months of life changing news and gruelling chemotherapy. Everything had changed so fast. We had been on that rollercoaster that no one would choose to get on that everyone mentions. We were so unsure of what was next with regards to treatment, surgery etc as our Oncologist was suddenly unable to work so a team of medical professionals were getting together to review the patient files, and decide what our next path would be. We distracted ourselves to escape the nonsense by running away to Venice for 4 nights. It was perfect. It gave us much needed time away from the cancer bubble. It gave me confidence to ditch the wigs and show off my candy floss receding hair. This was as bald as I got thanks to persevering for 5.5 months with the @scalpcooling freezing cold cap. I lost my eyelashes in these 4 days but the beautiful sights and picturesque buildings that we were surrounded by stopped me from freaking out, as I realised in a moment that I don’t need eyelashes to see... well if I had sunglasses on anyway, as you don’t realise what a great job eyelashes do to keep stuff out of your eyes until you haven’t got any!
Beautiful place, so unique. It certainly helped us both to get off the nasty rollercoaster for a short while and just feel like “us”. Very happy memories 💞
As most of you know, I LOVE to change instruments!! Is a really funny thing to do when you don’t have what to do. But is also awesome to see how difficult is every instrument in their own way. Because, is not as easy as it seems, doesn’t matter what we play. I really love to do this because it makes me love more music, makes me appreciate more what I do and I have done, but of course what others do and have done. 😊🥰
Two weeks ago I had the chance to try with @pablodoblem_ ‘s violin. And it was really funny. We were teaching each other how to “try” to make it sound more or less in a correct way and learn how is the correct posture while playing.
I really recommend you to try this things some time!! Now... What instrument do you shan’t me next to try? 🤔Would you like to see some videos playing other instruments too?? 😏
Como la mayoría sabéis, ¡ADORO cambiar de instrumentos! Es algo realmente divertido de hacer cuando no tienes qué hacer. Pero también es impresionante ver lo difícil que es cada instrumento a su manera. Porque, no es tan fácil como parece, no importa lo qué toquemos. Realmente me encanta hacer esto porque me hace apreciar más la música, me hace apreciar más lo que hago y lo que he conseguido hasta ahora, pero, por supuesto, lo que otros hacen y han hecho hasta llegar a donde están.
Hace dos semanas tuve la oportunidad de probar el violín de @pablodoblem_. Y fue muy divertido.🤣 Nos estábamos enseñando mutuamente cómo "intentar" hacer que sonase más o menos de forma correcta y aprender cómo es la postura correcta mientras tocamos.
Realmente recomiendo que se prueben estas cosas alguna vez !! Ahora ... ¿Qué instrumentoos gustaría que fuera el siguiente?🤔 ¿Os gustaría ver algunos videos tocando otros instrumentos también? 😏

#онко. Сегодня 45 дней со дня первой химиотерапии. И пора написать о криошлеме, о котором так мало информации. #Криошлем #paxman он же #термошапочка. Когда я попала на первый приём к своему врачу, она дала заключение, и потом посмотрев на мои волосы сказала - «а эту красоту попробуем сохранить». Я была морально готова , что волосы выпадут , и это меня волновало в последнюю очередь. Но я зацепилась. В мкнц мне предложили шлем совершенно бесплатно и в экспериментальных целях:) Как известно, химиотерапия влияет на быстроделящиеся клетки, среди которых клетки рака, эпителия жкт , костный мозг и в частности волосяные луковицы. Суть метода в том, что за 30 минут до терапии на голову надевают шлем , который сильно охлаждает кожу головы- почти до 4 градусов. Делание клеток замедляется и химия действует на них не так сильно. Метод к сожалению не 100% : помогает не всем и иногда волосы выпадают частично. Среди всех опрошенных мной лично , кто применял шлем ( 3человека) волосы не удалось сохранить никому. Выпали или сразу , или в течение 30 дней. Мой результат- 45 дней против обычных 14-21, когда у большинства выпадают волосы на красной химии. Даже если потом они выпадут, думаю это неплохой результат- походить лишний месяц со своими. По поводу ощущений - первые два раза перенесла спокойно «сугроб» на голове. Его надевают на мокрые волосы для лучшей проводимости. Через пару минут голова адаптируются и ощущения притупляются. Третий раз от холода сильно болела голова. Но тоже терпимо, согласитесь. Снимают его через полчаса после капельниц.
Всем добра и легкой химии❤️🙏🏻
