Trina Little and Sarah Taite are undertaking the challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in support of Breast Cancer Kent.
Breast Cancer Kent aims to improve the lives of those diagnosed with breast cancer. They do this by funding projects, equipment and research to support the work of the NHS Medical Teams at the Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells Breast Care Units, Kent Oncology Centre and the University of Kent School of Biosciences.
The charity acts as a hub for fundraising, receiving donations, allocating funds to projects large and small, and disseminating general information on breast health and breast cancer treatments.
The funds of Breast Cancer Kent go to enhancing and complimenting the work of the NHS Trusts – funding a specialist study day for a breast care nurse, a safe ride home in a taxi for an elderly patient attending a late evening clinic or tomosynthesis scanning equipment which has revolutionised the diagnosis of breast cancer.
Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain above sea level in the world. Camping for eight days and climbing to an altitude of 19,341ft above sea level, Trina and Sarah are supporting Breast Cancer Kent in their bid to raise £150,000 for vital life-saving equipment and essential services for patients being treated for breast cancer in Kent.
