Story

Big thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

My story (Lisa) is simple and fortunately for me has a happy ending. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 21st June 2011, I put on my brave face, hard hat and hob nail boots ( to kick some cancer bottom) and had a mastectomy, chemo and radiotherapy. I finished my radiotherapy at the end of January and I'm now doing great! The grass is greener and the air is sweeter. Not a day goes by where I'm not grateful to be here, for my amazing family and friends and for the truly amazing and inspirational doctors and nurses who have guided me through my cancer journey with great skill and care.

I'm joining forces with my wonderful and truly amazing friend Lorraine Smith, who was diagnosed with breast cancer Dec 2011,  we want to help others who are undergoing cancer treatment and whose outcomes are not as positive as ours. To do this we're taking on the 3 Volcanos challenge in September with your help and support. You can follow our progress, training and fundraising on this JustGiving page and on my blog Lil Sonny Sky.

The Yorkshire Cancer Centre at the St. James's institute of Oncology in Leeds is the biggest purpose built cancer centre in Europe. The Moneys you donate will go towards specialist equipment, research and development, patient comfort and support.

Fab!
