Group needs council support
HAVING been referred to Hillingdon Hospital’s breast clinic with suspected cancer I hoped to be able to use the services of the Community Cancer Centre in Yiewsley.
However, when I went there it had closed down. It turns out to be yet another victim of “the cuts”.
Doing some online research I found out from www.breastcancer. org that “Research suggests that women with low levels of Vitamin D have a higher risk of breast cancer.”
Having had my blood tested I was found to have very low levels of Vitamin D.
Most women that I have spoken to are not aware of this, so I would encourage your readers to go to their GP and get their Vitamin D levels tested.
Harlington Hospice are trying to support the people who are no longer able to use the Community Cancer Centre’s services. I would encourage Hillingdon Council to fund Harlington Hospice properly to enable them to create a new cancer support group. Deborah King via email
