“I have been running the Manchester 10K for the last 4 years and two years ago, met Michelle Cohen at a networking event and decided to run in aid of Prevent Breast Cancer. At that stage, I didn’t know a huge amount about their work but over the next two years I have come to learn and understand how valuable and unique their research is.

I very sadly lost a young friend, some years ago now, to breast cancer and two other friends, again one very young in her early 30s who have thankfully fought and won their battle against this horrid disease.

We all need to be so much more aware than we are about how we can manage our health.  Last year I arranged for Dr Michelle Harvie to come to our offices in Manchester and give an extremely enlightening talk about how we can all lead a healthier lifestyle, by making relatively small changes.

I am very much looking forward to taking up my role as an Ambassador for Prevent Breast Cancer, raising awareness of their work and their powerful message within my industry, my colleagues contacts and friends.”
