Claire Halliday will take part in the world’s largest half marathon, The Great North Run this September.

Claire is a Breast Centre patient who has chosen to do the Great North Run in aid of the Breast Centre Appeal.  In her own words, this is why…

I was one of those patients in 2020.   The service they provide goes beyond the diagnosis and subsequent NHS treatment.  Donations to the centre provide special bras for mastectomy and reconstruction patients and offer complementary therapies and confidence session.  Donations have also provided a physiotherapist for one on one sessions as an exercise prescription service, the first of its kind in Wales and a gym for outpatients having surgery for breast cancer.  I attend the Pink Ribbon Fitness Group which offers free exercise and swim classes, group walks and get together for anyone who has experienced breast cancer.  A fantastic support group run by fantastic staff”.

“The Breast Centre at University Hospital Llandough treats between 450 and 500 new breast cancer patients every year.

We wish all the very best of luck Claire.  If you would like to donate and support Claire and the Breast Centre, you can do so here
