"A tribute to the NHS - cured my sister of cancer..."

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

Anything else?

After a routine mastectomy test they detected that my sister had breast cancer. She was advised to have surgery and following this the tests showed that she no longer had the cancer. Therefore there was no further treatment necessary and it was the best possible outcome.

The NHS did a fantastic job and save the life of my sister for a second time. (She also had neck cancer when only 7 years of age when in Scotland and had a risky operation and again that was successful)
