Debbie raises £3,500 for Action Cancer!

 

We are so proud of our Halifax Foundation colleague Debbie Taylor, who raised £3,500 for Action Cancer!
Following a routine mammogram with Action Cancer in November 2020, Debbie was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer (Ductal Carcinoma In Situ) and had lumpectomy surgery on New Years Eve, followed by 5 days of radiotherapy in March this year.
 
Debbie said, "I really wanted to give something back and fundraise for Action Cancer, without whom my cancer would not have been detected as I had no symptoms at all.  I decided to do a 30km per day cycling/walking challenge every day during the month of February before my radiotherapy was due to start on 1st March." Debbie was able to avail of the Foundation’s Matched Giving Scheme, providing an additional £500 in matched funding for the charity.
 
Through this fundraiser, Debbie hopes to highlight the importance of being breast aware and urges all women aged 40-49 to avail of the Action Cancer breast screening programme.
 
Thank you Action Cancer!
