I got breast cancer in 2020 and discovered two malignant cancers that were growing very fast. I faced all the cancer treatments alone in Iceland including chemotherapy and radiotherapy and finally a bilateral total mastectomy. I had the last surgery in June 2023 and I hope I'm done. Ljosid has helped me a lot in my journey thanks to rehabilitation, psychological and emotional support because I faced all the disease alone without family during the Covid pandemic. Ljosid must grow both as a structure and in its services especially for people who are alone.It is important to convey positivity, energy and motivation. I strongly believe that giving important life goals creates a great stimulus for the sick person to heal quickly.
