I have known Joanne for over 20 years and she is my oldest and closest friend. We have gone through so much together, throughout work, marriage, and having our children, and not so long ago her battle with breast cancer. She has always had such a positive and caring attitude towards everyone and everything in her life.

When she decided to set up the charity FACT, I couldn’t begin to realise how successful it would become, and became in such a short length of time. But along with Judith and Lesley, and all the FACT volunteers, it has grown into such a fantastic and worthwhile cause. FACT reaches out to everyone who has been affected by cancer, providing support and awareness to all who need it.

I have been a volunteer from the beginning and have enjoyed every minute of my journey with FACT so far. I am looking forward to being a part of such an inspirational organisation in the future too. FACT is already a huge success and I feel proud and honoured to be a part of the team as a Trustee.
