Conquering Cancer Together

Conquering Cancer Together

Publication: Feb. 28, 2021

On the 24th December 2015, Denise Coates was told that she had breast cancer. Conquering Cancer Together is about the impact that breast cancer has had, not only on her but on those around her. It’s about hope, it’s about awareness of early detection and it’s about the support of other inspirational women who have shared their survival stories and tips. At the forefront of Denise’s mind was for our future generations and education.

Denise’s breast cancer journey led her to discover her inner determination and resilience, which in turn gave her an overwhelming sense of wanting to give back. Since then Denise has become a media volunteer for Cancer Research UK and has been a charity ambassador for the L&D Hospital and is currently a volunteer fundraiser for the L&D Breast Cancer Unit, sharing her story in order to help others on their journey.

Conquering Cancer Together is part cancer memoir but also a true story about gaining an appreciation of life and wanting to give something positive back.
