Having recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, Julie wanted to make a difference and brave the shave alongside her husband and other members of her family.
Speaking about her motivation for doing a brave the shave challenge, the wonderful Julie has said, “Having been recently diagnosed with breast cancer, it was a big shock to my family and I. I’ve now had surgery and am on to the preventative treatment which will last 18 weeks. With chemotherapy now underway, my hair started to fall out.”
Julie had a target of £1500 and has already gone well above this within just a week of creating her JustGiving page.
So I feel now is the time to turn a negative in to a positive and raise some money to help research this horrible disease.”
We would like to thank Julie and her family for their amazing support for Against Breast Cancer. Their fundraising will go towards our ground breaking research to improve detection, treatment and increase survival after breast cancer diagnosis, the focus of our research is preventing secondary spread, the main cause of breast cancer related deaths.
