The RSP sets sail for Breast Cancer with patients and nurses from The Breast Department in Queen Alexandra (QA) Hospital next Friday 24th of May. The day sail has been organised by dynamic and unstoppable Metastatic Breast Cancer Nurse Specialist Ellie Blaiklock who works with 16 ladies under 40 living with this incurable cancer. Many of them are still working and bringing up young children while living with the uncertainty of their disease. We are aiming to give them a memorable, fun day on the water with a team of dedicated RSP volunteers.
“This is such a fantastic opportunity for them to have some time to themselves in the company of others experiencing the same thing and of course the experience of sailing for the day, so we can’t thank you enough”
Ellie Blaiklock – Metastatic Breast Cancer Nurse Specialist
We are looking forward to welcoming with Ellie her team of lovely ladies for a carefree day in the Solent.
It’s important the RSP to be able to provide such an experience to people on a tough journey and we are happy and privileged to be able to do this.
Ellie explained to us:
“Approximately 270 women are availing of the specialised services. Metastatic Breast Cancer means that it has spread to other parts of the body. One it has spread, the disease is incurable and will shorten patience life expectancy. Many of the patients will remain on long term treatments including chemo and radiotherapy for many months to years. I currently have 16 ladies under 40 living with this incurable cancer and many of them are still working and bringing up young children as well as living with the uncertainty of their disease, these are the ladies we have asked to come sailing with you guys!”Ellie Blaiklock
We are looking forward to welcome them all on board .
