SHIRLEY woman who overcame breast cancer is urging fellow Silhillians to support this month’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
Fiona Harris, aged 54, was diagnosed with the illness in 2002. But she battled through a gruelling treatment programme- including 14 months of chemo and radiotherapy - and is now in remission.
During her ordeal, Fiona had support from Macmillan Cancer Care and she hopes that local people will get behind the charity’s biggest annual fund raiser.
“You have questions that need to be answered… about chemo and about your hair …and Macmillan is there for you,” she said.
Next Friday (September 25), the cancer survivor and her friend Jeanette White will be brewing a cuppa and helping to raise money for charity.
The meeting is one of many that will be taking place at schools, homes and businesses around the borough.
Events are planned for Mell Square - which played host to the charity last year - and the SIMTR Conference Centre.
