THE family of a much-loved great-grandmother have donated £745 to St Helens Hospital’s Burney Breast Unit.
Sheila Brooks’ daughter, Sue Wavell, said: “Sadly mum died of breast cancer in May this year, aged 68. She had known about a lump in her breast for a couple of years, but kept it to herself. Unfortunately by the time she sought treatment, the cancer had spread to other parts of her body. If this can encourage other women to be aware of breast cancer and the need to get checked out, she won’t have died in vain.”
