Steph’s Special Day story
Steph has completed chemotherapy and surgery for breast cancer. She stayed in London for her Special Day and went to the Olympia Horse Show, something she had always wanted to do.
Due to my life being turned upside down last year. I took the opportunity to achieve a life long dream. I had always wanted to attend Olympia Horse Show the week before Christmas but had saved my annual leave for the Christmas period so had never been able to go.
I also wanted to thank a very special friend who helped me in so many ways during my treatment (someone to listen, tell me to shut up, drive me to hospital in the middle of the night and to look after my horse when I was too ill) by taking her on my trip to Olympia with me.
My Special Day marked the end of a terrible year and gave me something to work towards and to look forward to.Steph
My Special Day was amazing, we had an incredible three days and we managed to do everything we wanted in London, our hotel was the perfect location for everything and we had great seats at Olympia.
It has given me amazing memories to cherish forever, it also gave me the opportunity to thank a friend in the most perfect way, a punch of flowers definitely would not cut it in these circumstances.
Since treatment, I’m putting myself back together again bit by bit. I am slowly getting stronger every day, I am over the moon to be back training in the gym five days a week and back on board my handsome big horse.
My Special Day marked the end of a terrible year and gave me something to work towards (fitness wise) and to look forward to. We made lots of memories, I came back completely shattered but it was all worth it for such an incredible experience.”
