In March 2015, I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. Surgery followed in May, and five weeks of radiotherapy at the Cancer Centre in Belfast finished in August. 

My friends and I are planning to climb Ben Nevis on Saturday, June 11th. On that date last year, I was recovering from major surgery and waiting on a start date for radiotherapy. What a difference a year makes!

The radiotherapy suite is not one of the hottest must-see locations in Northern Ireland; however, Friends of the Cancer Centre strive to make improvements to create a relaxing and welcoming environment. 

They are also involved in cancer research, partnering with Queens University Belfast. 

About the charity

Each year Friends of the Cancer Centre funds life saving and life changing projects which make a real and positive difference to thousands of cancer patients and their families. The charity relies on donations from the public to be able to support these patients locally and across Northern Ireland.
