Paulette was diagnosed after a routine mammogram in 2017. Following her surgery and treatment Paulette is taking Tamoxifen, a drug that Tenovus Cancer Care helped play a part in developing. She’s been playing our lottery for two years and is pleased to be giving back to the charity.

“I don’t play the national lottery because it only supports bigger companies but knowing about the charities services, its Welsh roots, and how they helped develop Tamoxifen which supports people like me, I signed up. Giving something back for the treatment I’m receiving feels very personal and rewarding.”
