Just two weeks after giving birth, Rachel needed surgery to remove a grapefruit-sized tumour. The prospect of being separated from her tiny baby was unbearable.
Thanks to Guy’s Cancer Charity funding Ben was able to use specialist robotic equipment to carry out Rachel’s operation. Meaning she could be home in just one day, sharing precious moments with baby Phoenix.
We’re helping the dedicated team at Guy’s Cancer to keep pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.
From investing in the robot Ben used to remove Rachel’s tumour, to supporting people like James carrying out pioneering research, we help Guy’s Cancer advance cancer care.
Support pioneering cancer care for people like Rachel.
Ben, my surgeon, and my midwives were really fighting my corner. I didn't feel like I was alone.
