Inspiring cancer fundraiser led by brave Ballater woman, Eileen Collins Eileen, pictured here with her good friends Jenny and Steve Gow, contacted HCUK in December and explained that she had a terminal diagnosis of oesophageal cancer but that she wished to donate funds to raise awareness and ensure that other people in a similar position have a better chance of survival in the future. In less than a month Eileen and her close friends raised a staggering £10,000.
