Making a difference

In 1990, when I was 44, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.

I was in hospital for five weeks and spent that time ringing around and trying to get some kind of help. I lived on my own and had a full-time job. There were just no support services at that time.

When I got my second breast cancer diagnosis at 64, I didn’t need to stress myself out, because by then Lyn [Swinburne] had started BCNA. I received the help and support I needed. I also met Abby [BCNA’s Major Donor and Bequest Manager] and she’s been wonderful.

The support I have received has made such a difference to my life and that’s why I have chosen to bequest a third of my estate to BCNA.
