Memories on the 25th Anniversary of BBC Breakfast Time – February 2007. The BBC had pinched me from HTV where I was doing a programme called Here Today. They saw me wearing my green leotard and tights and doing a piece on exercise, which was the first time it had been done on TV.
As part of the original team of BBC Breakfast Time, from 1983 – 1987, I was a symbol of health and fitness for the nation in my campaign “Get Britain Fit” wearing my trademark shiny green leotard and tights! It came as a complete surprise to me that I had breast cancer. I was feeling as fit as a fiddle at the time and there was no indication that anything was wrong. I was 47 when I was diagnosed and was at the peak of my fitness.
The most damaging factor in ageing skin is over exposure to the sun. It causes age spots, coarse wrinkles, small broken blood vessels and the skin to have a leathery texture. This type of skin ageing can be prevented. Sun can affect the skin cells and causes cell damage, but it also poses health threats including skin cancers. The effects from the sunburn may not be visible for years, but the harmful rays will have done their damage. Always protect your skin with creams and gels containing SPF (sun protection factor) dermatologist’s number one skincare recommendation.
Recently I came across an excellent book “Breast Cancer – Answers at your fingertips”. Oh how I wish this sort of book had been available to me 22 years ago when I travelled my breast cancer journey alone. Sadly this book and all the other such books had yet to be written because cancer was not openly talked about that many years ago. Consequently I experienced my bumpy, sometimes frightening ride without a lot to read to prepare me for the unexpected hazards I encountered around every bend.
