The Haven offers vital support to people and their families who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. In order to carry on with this vital service we need to raise funds so that no one has to face breast cancer alone.

I first walked through the doors at The Haven in 2008, after being diagnosed with grade 3 breast cancer, although I had finished my Chemo and Radiotherapy and was already working full time I still felt that I needed some kind of support. The Haven instantly made me feel so welcome and this put me at such ease. After an initial consultation I was offered 6 different sessions with therapists and Holistic people who made me feel human again. Over the years I have tried to give back by raising money for The Haven, however this year i was approached and asked if i would consider being a model at this years Blossom Fashion Show in Leeds and i jumped at the chance. I feel it will give me my confidence back and strut my stuff within a fantastic atmosphere and day.
