I have survived cancer twice. In 1980 I was treated for bone cancer which resulted in my leg being amputated as well as having to endure a year of gruelling chemotherapy. At the time I never thought I would find myself in the same situation again however, in 2005 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy and then reconstructive surgery.
I recognise the advances in patient care that have been made in the last 25 years. The Beatson Translational Research Centre will speed up drug development and ultimately help find a cure. I look forward to the day when our future generations are free from the risk of Cancer. Along with 4 friends I have established 'Think Pink Scotland' to raise funds for breast cancer research through the Beatson Translational Research Centre. We have a fundraising target of £250,000. I am giving this campaign my full support, I would urge you to do the same.
