Emma Herring


Emma is a volunteer at Ticking Off Breast Cancer. She wanted to give something back to this cancer support community after the help and advice she found following her HER2 positive breast cancer diagnosis in 2017. She had a mastectomy with immediate reconstruction with an implant, 5 months of chemotherapy, lymph node clearance surgery and then 15 rounds of radiotherapy. She also had Herceptin and Zometa. In 2019 she had symmetrising surgery. Emma works as a freelance writer, editor and communications consultant and lives with her husband and her dog Ruby in a village in Hertfordshire.
