Cancer survivor Cherlene celebrates 10 years clear by climbing Nevis

27th May 2014

Team Beatson, meet an incredible young lady - Cherlene O'Donnell. She climbed Ben Nevis at the weekend along with friends and family, and has raised over £3000 for the Beatson in the process - what an achievement!Cherlene battled cancer 10 years ago and this challenge was to honour that and raise money for the many other patients and their families who visit the Beatson year on year. Cherlene said: 'I am 32 and 10 years in remission this year thanks to the fantastic doctors and nursing staff at the Beatson. I thought the best way to celebrate was to give something back, I went into a trial during my treatment so I really appreciate the need for funds and hopefully we'll raise lots!!!!!'We can't thank you enough Cherlene, and to everyone who donated and climbed Ben Nevis with you!
