Tracy Puttock has spent her working life with some of the biggest names in the financial industry. She is highly regarded for her expertise in the field of financial risk.
However, it was in 2013 that Tracy found a lump and several sleepless nights later was told that she had breast cancer. Her thoughts at the time were “I don’t have time for this, I’m too busy working, I don’t want a wig, I have a husband and kids and I certainly don’t want to die!”
After struggling through surgery, hair loss, chemo and other gruelling therapies, Tracy was declared cancer free. Except that three years later a routine scan showed that the cancer had returned. “My biggest worry at that time”, says Tracy, “was how to tell my husband and kids.”
Tracy still has to undergo regular treatment but has continued to work as she did throughout both her breast cancer diagnoses.
It was at Brewin Dolphin in October 2019 that Tracy heard a presentation from Prevent Breast Cancer about their revolutionary approach to risk assessment and risk adapted screening.
“It was like a light had switched on” says Tracy, “My passion and work is all about risk management and here is a charity that speaks to my whole approach to life.”
