Christine Oliver was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in February 2008. I am married to Keith and have two children and two grandchildren.

I underwent a mastectomy and reconstruction in March 2008 and 28 weeks of chemotherapy. I was so impressed with the treatment I received from The Chartwell Unit, and more importantly, Mr Desai, that I felt I wanted to give something back to benefit others.

I did my first fundraiser for The Chartwell Breast Unit in September 2009 with the help of my husband and friends. I am also the Treasurer for the charity.
