Cancer pa­tient gives back to hospi­tal

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

A for­mer breast cancer pa­tient has raised hun­dreds of pounds for the hospi­tal which treated her.

Belinda El­lis pre­sented the Breast Unit at Peter­bor­ough City Hospi­tal with a do­na­tion of over £560. Belinda, pic­tured with hospi­tal staff,marked the fifth an­niver­sary of her breast cancer di­ag­no­sis with a ‘Wear It Pink’ tea party. The party raised £385, with HP Packard do­nat­ing the rest. Belinda’s hus­band works for the firm. She said: “I wanted to do some­thing that would ben­e­fit the women and men vis­it­ing the Breast unit, but also raise aware­ness amongst my friends. The tea party was a big hit with guests and we raised £385 over cake and a cuppa. We also had leaflets avail­able for guests to read, high­light­ing the im­por­tance of reg­u­larly check­ing your breasts and see­ing your GP as soon as you spot some­thing un­usual.”
