Claire’s personal story
Emotional support given the same weight as clinical needs.
Claire was diagnosed with grade 2 invasive breast cancer in April 2017. A mastectomy and reconstruction was recommended. And this was to be followed by chemotherapy. Claire had access to HSC through her employer. Multiple questions relating to her diagnosis, treatment and side effects were answered. And she benefitted greatly from the emotional support on offer. HSC also helped in finding a plastic surgeon close to where she lived for her reconstruction.
We helped Claire identify a specialist for her post-surgery chemo and she was able to enjoy both her daughter’s hen do and the wedding day itself. More recently, Claire has been well enough to go back to work through a phased return process.
