Breast Cancer Services

 

Breast Cancer Services is Whiston and St Helens Hospitals’ Charity’s dedicated charitable fund for supporting patients living with breast cancer, helping to improve women’s lives every single day.


Pink pigs takeover at STHK

Trust staff always go above and beyond to support fabulous fundraiser Julie Lynan in her quest to raise money to support patients living with breast cancer
Who can forget Jules’ Tubes and the thousands of pounds raised (and smarties eaten!) or last year’s Pink Friday complete with stretch limo and pink parade around local businesses. Well this year Jules’ Pink Army has some new members… hundreds of pink piggies!

The pigs trotted into the Trust at the beginning of October and were quickly adopted by staff across STHK who promised to take them home and feed them pounds and pennies until they are full!

Julie said, “I am bowled over by the generosity of everyone who has jumped at the chance to pick up a pig, it’s just a fun idea to catch people’s attention and raise as much money as possible to help our patients during difficult times. I really cannot thank everyone enough for their support.”

 

Where your money goes
Thanks to the incredible efforts of fundraisers, we raised an extraordinary £4,000 last October for breast cancer services and now provide every Breast Cancer patient with a
FREE post-surgery specialist bra and drain bag.


This complementary service is the brainchild of one of our fantastic staff…

 

Meet Julie

 

Our amazing fundraiser Julie Lynan is a Patient Advice and Liaison Officer at Whiston Hospital and a ‘Pink Lady’ – when she’s not at her desk she’s a lady on a mission to raise thousands of pounds to benefit patients who are living with breast cancer.

Following on from her own treatment for breast cancer at the Trust, Julie has set out to say thank you to everyone who cared for her at Whiston and St Helens hospitals and raise funds for the hospitals’ charity.
