20 year old Tiffany knows all too well how important research carried out by Cancer Research UK’s doctors, nurses and scientists is to people like her.
In 2014, Tiffany had developed lumps on her neck which she assumed were swollen glands and not a serious health issue. After a visit to the doctors she was shocked to hear that she was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma.
Tiffany underwent chemotherapy treatment all whilst enrolled at university where she is currently studying Tourism Management. She also underwent four weeks of fertility treatment to ensure she can have children despite any side effects from the cancer treatment. Her eggs have now been frozen for use in the future.
Tiffany has said of her cancer treatment: “It was a huge shock when I was diagnosed with cancer at such a young age, but thanks to research I am still here.”
Tiffany is now helping us highlight Dryathlon and inspire others to say ‘cheers to no beers’, “I’m urging everyone to register now and become a ‘Dryathlete’ for Cancer Research UK. They can achieve personal glory by banning the booze for a month and raising money for life-saving research.”
