A London Ambulance Service medic who survived breast cancer is calling on women – and men – to be aware of the importance of checking for lumps.
Tracy, a trainee Emergency Ambulance Crew who has been working with our new ‘Wellbeing Hub’ since the beginning of September, was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2018, aged 43.
Tracy had found a lump in her breast and booked a doctor’s appointment immediately. She received treatment over the course of a year, including chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy.
This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Tracy wants to remind women (and men, as breast cancer affects men too, in rare cases) to regularly check their breasts for lumps or any other changes.
