Pete praised the charity by saying: “It’s a large charity, but with a very human touch. There’s a really lovely community of people working together to help each other. In the early days of Amanda’s diagnosis we found the information, which is easily accessible online, marvellous and we couldn’t praise this enough.
I’m able to talk and guide partners, husbands and extended family in how to deal with some of the issues and problems they’ll face.
We all go through rigorous training before we’re partnered up as a support. Each volunteer is assigned a mentor to help them through process. There are many variations, diagnoses and stages of cancer and everyone deals with it in their own way. Volunteering is a rewarding role and it’s invaluable the service it provides.”
Both Amanda and Pete were astonished and extremely grateful for the amazing amount we raised for the worthwhile charity.
We can’t thank Amanda and Pete enough for sharing their story with us; they’re certainly an inspiration too!
Breast Cancer Now wrote to us : “It’s an incredible achievement, and you must be so proud. You’re helping to provide support for today and hope for the future – a future where everyone who develops breast cancer lives, and is supported to live well. That couldn’t be possible without people like you – thank you.
The incredible amount you’ve raised will help us to continue finding ways to prevent the disease, improve early diagnosis, develop new treatments, campaign for better care, and support people with the physical and emotional impact of breast cancer. We really can’t thank you enough.”
