Me with Theo, my youngest child

I’m Sam Leader and I live in Mullumbimby, Australia. I am a mum to three kids, a partner to John-Paul (aka Ted), a writer/author and am one of the owners of Flying Solo, Australia’s micro business community. This blog documents the time I had an unwelcome guest residing in my body in the form of DCIS, a non-invasive (yay!) breast cancer (boo!).

This blog is about life alongside DCIS. It was also a means of keeping those in my life informed (abreast?) of my progress, so I don’t have to tell the same story over and over and they don’t have to nod politely while I inevitably repeat myself. As this experience is now firmly in my past, I don’t post on here anymore but if you’d like to get in touch I’d love to hear from you, feel very free to contact me at sam(at)
