Congratulations to Hannah O’Sullivan who ran for SELBCT in this year’s London Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 14th October. To date Hannah has raised £682.63 with Gift Aid for which the trustees are very grateful to her for. Hannah’s reason for choosing SELBCT was:-
“A year ago my mum finished her grueling course of treatment for breast cancer. After a mastectomy, lymph dissection, reconstruction, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, it’s not just the physical scars that need to heal… The need for treatment doesn’t end here.
That’s where the South East London Breast Cancer Trust stepped in, picking up patients where the state funding ends.
This support group offers session to educate on stages of recovery, talks from experienced and specialists, fun evenings with mini treatments such as reflexology; as well as a group of people who really understand what you’re going through and are there when you just need to talk.
They also fund-raise to provide specialist equipment to local hospitals.
This small Trust have been a massive support for my mum (and others) over the past 2 years. For that I will always be grateful. ”
