Charmain Sangster, Christie volunteer

Charmain has been a volunteer at The Christie for the last four years. She currently helps often fragile and frightened first-time patients to find their way around the hospital.

Despite now volunteering here, Charmain’s first experience of The Christie was as a patient. She first came to the hospital 10 years ago when she was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. Charmain is supporting the Touching Lives campaign to show how The Christie charity helped her.

“The Christie is a cause very close to my heart. I’ve been coming here ever since had cancer and it now feels like a home from home. I always feel safe here, even now.”
“The Christie is a lifeline to so many people. It’s a place where I felt safe when I was treated for breast cancer ten years ago and I still feel safe when I come here now as a volunteer to help other patients.”
