WHY WERE DOING IT

- 04/06/2013
Supporters with special reasons for taking part include: Yvonne Elliott, who had a mastectomy six years ago. She will be selling badges at the walk and wants as many entries as possible. The new unit will make a huge difference to women to have all of the treatment areas and diagnostic equipment in the new block and also to be able to see specialists in the same place. NatWest, which is entering a team, with Maaike Kreckeler and Chrissie Golding, who have both had breast cancer, among its number. The new unit is going to make things so much easier for women going through what we have had. To put all the treatment and diagnosis areas in one spot will really help, said Chrissie.

‘Life is really good now...’ - Guernsey Press article

- 19/04/2013
YVONNE ELLIOTT is a lively, active 60-year-old who relishes looking after her young grandsons and spending time with friends and family. Her energy belies the fact that she had a mastectomy six years ago, later deciding to go through the major surgical steps involved in reconstruction. Although she has recently been recovering from an unrelated serious condition, Yvonne remains full of positivity. She will be selling badges during the Pink Ladies Sunset Walk on Saturday 22 June as her way of helping a ‘brilliant’ organisation to raise funds for the brand new breast unit at the PEH.
