Gillian serves up a real treat for cancer charites
A WOMAN who fought cancer and won has raised thousands of pounds for charity to help others diagnosed with the disease.
Gillian Stewart, of Benderloch, was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2013 at the age of 42.
Her treatment has proved successful and she now wants to give something back to those people who have helped her on the road to recovery.
She organised a strawberry tea earlier this month, which raised a magnificent £3,000 for the cancer charities.
A delighted Gillian, said: ‘After I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I came through my operation successfully and other treatments fairly unscathed.
‘As my health improved, I felt I wanted to give something back to those charities I have used over the last 18 months. I am raising money for the Beatson Cancer Charity, Breast Cancer Care Scotland and Oban Hospice.
‘For obvious reasons, I am helping a breast cancer charity, but also the Beatson because they treat you like royalty while you ‘live’ with them and they definitely deserve money towards all that they do.
‘I am supporting Oban Hospice because they fund cancer massage therapy sessions through the North Argyll Carers Centre which I have been using recently, and some of the money will go to keep that funded as it does help.’
Gillian is still collecting donations and would welcome further contributions.
