Breast cancer survivor Gill Phillips describes how screening found her cancer very early so that it could be treated quickly and that she now has the rest of her life to enjoy.
Breast cancer survivor Gill Phillips worked as a teacher with pupils with special needs for more than 40 years. She was lucky to teach across a very wide age spectrum, from infants to adult literacy classes. Her heart was in behaviour and she I loved the buzz of working with students who had difficulty “fitting in”. She finished her career with 20 years as head teacher at a pupil referral unit and she loved every minute.
