Fifteen years ago or thereabouts, my Mom found a lump in her breast. Tests showed that the lump itself was nothing to worry about, but there were breast cancer cells in her lymph nodes. It took several months for the tiny cancer to grow into something big enough to be detected, then Mom went through the lumpectomy, radiotherapy and chemotherapy which to all intents and purposes cured her. It was an awful time for her and for all of us, but she took great comfort from the kindness and care of the Macmillan Team. Mom’s story is not one I want to tell here in any more detail, at least not now, but I do want to thank those people again for everything they did. Sadly, having fought the cancer she died of a stroke, but when I have the opportunity to raise money for Macmillan I do it in her memory, and in honour of all those other women who have battled this awful disease including my cousin whose treatment has been within the last year.
