“After both my daughter and daughter-in-law were diagnosed with breast cancer my GP recommended I contact Action Cancer’s counselling service. It was such a relief to talk to someone outside of the family and to realise the way I was feeling was entirely normal.”

Joy Montgomery


“My cancer was detected through a routine screening with Action Cancer. Being proactive about my health meant I detected the cancer in its earlier stages when treatment can be more successful. I feel I owe my life to Action Cancer because if it hadn’t been for their screening programme I might not be here to tell my story.”
