Today Marta is 57 years old. She tells us that after 22 years she lives a thoroughly ambivalent life, from girl to women, from hopes to fears, a situation with no time to assimilate and with a healthy dose of defiance.

Begoña is 55 years old. When she was diagnosed at the age of 38, the only thing she could think of were her 3 very young children. That prompted her to lean on others and not to withdraw into herself. If they were well and looked after, she could rest assured.
