Cancer survivor: 'I beat this, what can't I do now?'

Cheryl Clock Feb. 6, 2013


Her breasts were gone. The hair on her head was post-chemo fuzz. And Alana Somerville was tired of the puzzled second glances and subsequent forced explanations.

So she made herself a T-shirt, printed with the words: Yes they're fake! (My real ones tried to kill me)

Sure, it was part shock value, part humour. But by the time the 35-year-old Niagara Falls mom found the lump in her left breast, she wanted nothing more to do with them.

Her breasts had betrayed her.
