“The possibilities offered by genomics are of great interest to me since having been diagnosed with ovarian cancer in July 2014”

“Having had surgery, undergone chemotherapy and now being on a maintenance drug, I have encountered a wealth of healthcare professionals which has given me an insight to the multitude of routes through which the 100,000 Genome project could potentially recruit participants.”

“Professionally I have a project management background having worked in management consultancy within the financial services sector for 18 years.”

“With two young children myself, I can relate to how parents of children with relevant illnesses may feel when approached to be involved in this project.”

“As well as the panel, I am also involved in the Macmillan Cancer Voices initiative. “

“I have recently set myself a personal goal of rebuilding my fitness and have started swimming, running and cycling to achieve this.”

“I am excited to have the opportunity to offer a patient viewpoint in the way genomics develops and delivers treatments.”
