Myself, Heather and Tom have attended a meeting with Sacha Howell, one of the top oncologists at Christies. We talked about what trials and treatments were ongoing for breast cancer. The research centre has some fantastic trials as a result of which Shine Bright Foundation have agreed to donate £17,000 to the research team for two breast cancer trials, one of which is specific to Triple Negative Breast Cancer. We are only able to make this donation to research because of all the support we receive from you lovely people. Whether it's running marathons, running events, buying the calendar and book, attending the ball or donating raffle prizes every penny really does count. We are continuing to provide 6 free reiki and reflexology treatments to anyone with breast cancer in the local area and last week three of the ladies who have had reiki treatments funded by Shine Bright Foundation did their Reiki level 1 course so that they can continue to treat themselves. So from all of us at Shine Bright and all the people with breast cancer you are helping a massive THANK YOU.
