The story of Delphine: finding a new calling and community through her breast cancer journey

Share this story

According to the most recent statistics, over 11,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in Belgium in 2021, making this the most diagnosed cancer in women in the country. Unfortunately, this figure is incorrect. Breast cancer not only affects the lives of those directly diagnosed but also has a profound impact on their families, friends, loved ones, and colleagues.

In 2019, Delphine was diagnosed with breast cancer, a moment she experienced with a tsunami of emotions, good and bad. In deciding the best plan of action for her treatment, she took a genomic test to help identify whether she would need to undergo chemotherapy or not. In her case, it was deemed necessary, but she was reassured in knowing that this was the most suitable path to follow for her breast cancer treatment.

For Delphine, the sense of community and support during and after treatment is crucial. This has led her to be extremely involved in this cause, first with the creation of her blog “Cancer? Je gère !”, and later in writing her book with the same name. The proceeds from the book sales were donated to BIG against breast cancer. In addition to this, she became an Ambassadors of BIG. Her latest project, now in its third season, is “Naître princesse, devenir guerrière” (“Born a princess, become a warrior”).  

I can't emphasise enough the importance of research, which saves us. If we look at the numbers from the 1970s to today, the survival rates have increased by 40%, which is significant. Furthermore, I absolutely love all the research conducted by BIG, such as the BIG Time for Baby study and the Metastatic GPS research programme aiming to understand metastatic breast cancer. So, it's very truly extremely important.

Pink October "I miss you" campaign

For some, «I miss you» reminds them of the pain in their hearts following the loss of a loved one, and the lack of understanding in the eyes of people around them. For others, it will be a matter of grieving for their previous life or for a breast, an important symbol of femininity and maternity.

«I miss you» is also a message of hope. Like a postcard that you send to a friend you are looking forward to seeing again. It is also the hope of soon regaining a new version of yourself, of re-emerging after multiple treatments.
