The Malignant Ginger

I'm Jojogingerhead, a 31 year old artist & musician based in Brighton (UK) satirically documenting the highs and lows of my secondary triple negative breast cancer diagnosis. Trying to see the light in a dark and scary situation without using the words fight, battle, journey or survivor.

Just in time for Halloween, my surgeon informed me this morning that the scar left from my operation will be in the shape of a bat. It’s even medically named ‘the batwing’, how cool is that?! The chemo has done it’s job and shrunk the tumour so much (from 40mm down to less than 20mm) that I will be having a lumpectomy rather than a mastectomy. I’m just waiting for the operation on Monday 3rd November now, I can’t wait for the tumour to be out of my body.
