Member Support Assistant
Lisa is a Member Support Assistant at Hummingbird Cancer Support Group. She was referred to the group by Macmillan, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018. She found the reassurance and morale support so comforting and was put at ease as she travelled through the biggest milestone and shock of her life.
The treatments that are available are so soothing and relaxing. Lisa found they help immensely when going through all the clinical cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and lumpectomy.
After attending the group as a patient, Lisa was given the opportunity to register as a volunteer. Having experienced cancer treatment first-hand, Lisa is an advocate of the Hummingbird method. She knows how it feels, how overwhelming it can be and where to look for support.
Lisa says she is very privileged to be part of a great team and finds it enjoyable, rewarding, and supportive.
