diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2020, with no family history, no
faulty genes, just pure rubbish luck. Being diagnosed was exactly how you’d
imagine it to be, absolutely awful. That day was the worst day of my life. I
was completely and utterly distraught."
"Clatterbridge provided the best care throughout my treatment journey, their dedicated staff always so cheerful, positive and upbeat, keeping my spirits up during some very difficult times. It is a very special place and I will always be grateful to them."
"Over the years, I have seen the impact that donations to our charity have on patients, whether it’s through life-saving research, the best equipment or creating a warm and welcoming environment; your support really does help to change and save people’s lives."
“Throughout the pandemic, I wrote more than 15 poems, which were shared weekly with staff. Given that as a region we are going through difficult times once again I wanted to share them with everyone else in the hope they can bring comfort and some laughter."
"November marks my official 5 years of being cancer free! We decided to take part in Skydive Sunday to not only raise some money this year, but we wanted an exciting way to mark my 'cancerversary'. What better way to celebrate than to jump out of a plane!"
"The day-to-day life of our patients
are very different, and sometimes it is a struggle but we won’t hesitate to sit
and have a cup of tea and chat with our patients, and reassure them that we are
there for them every step of the way."
