At Christmas FDR Law staff held a giant raffle and made donations in lieu of Christmas cards in support of two colleagues who have been touched by the disease.
Solicitors raise money for Breast Cancer Care.
Warrington receptionist Philippa Quayle has recently returned to work after being successfully treated for cancer and the mother of her colleague Sam Bramwell has also suffered breast cancer.
Partner Jennifer Roulston, who is based in the FDR Law office in Stockton Heath, said: “This is such a worthwhile charity. It helps support thousands of women and their families with information, talks and courses. I’m delighted the firm was able to get behind our two colleagues and do something positive to help.”
Sam’s mother made extensive use of the charity’s invaluable information service and Philippa received help from a number of sources including caring staff at Warrington General Hospital.
Her cancer was picked up early thanks to the routine NHS breast screening programme. She recalls: “Just after my 50th birthday I was called in for a scan like thousands of women who hit this milestone. It was diagnosed immediately and within a month I underwent an operation. Everything went so smoothly I was only off work for eight weeks and back at my desk again in October. If I’d not gone for the scan, it could certainly have been a very different story.”
