Paul was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2013, which then spread to his stomach. Paul had a nine week course of chemotherapy at The Beatson, and in his own words, he felt drained.
Paul started using the Wellbeing Centre, he benefited from therapeutic treatments such as head massages to help him cope with the stress of treatment and side effects like hair loss.
“Being able to escape to Beatson Cancer Charity wellbeing Centre meant I could take some time out to relax in calm and peaceful atmosphere. The staff at The Beatson are second to none and really took the time to know my family, helping us through this terrifying experience.”
Paul never thought his family will grow after his treatment. “After my treatment I am proud to say my family is complete with addition of our new baby Jack”.
“This year, I am hanging my Beatson Bauble to say the biggest thank you from me and my beautiful family”.
