Singleton mum Donna Heath who is battling breast cancer will take part in the Electric Run UK at Wembley Park, London, in aid of Breast Cancer Care

Donna Heath, 37, from Singleton will compete in the Electric Run UK at Wembley Park, London, in aid of Breast Cancer Care next month with family members and friends.

Donna, who works with adults with autism and learning difficulties, was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago when her daughter Amie was just a year old.

She had a lumpectomy followed by radiotherapy and chemotherapy but three years later the cancer returned and Donna had a mastectomy.

She said: “When I was first diagnosed Breast Cancer Care helped me immensely. I was so scared and talking to other ladies the same age with similar diagnoses on the forum was so very helpful. I also used the helpline a few times when I was very anxious.

“Mummy’s Lump has been very a valuable resource as we read it together and my daughter asks questions and seems to understand what is going on. My partner Daniel Bunn was my rock throughout my diagnosis and treatment, I am not sure I could have got through it without him.

"Daniel has also benefited from reading some publications from Breast Cancer Care such as In It Together for partners of people with breast cancer.

“My team for the Electric Run is a mixture of family and friends who have stood by me and supported me. By the time the run comes around I will have finished my current treatment and the run is a great way to mark that!”

Donna is currently on sick leave from her job as a service manager at a charity in Lympne.

Electric Run is a night-time 5km run or walk where participants become part of a show that sees them travel through “lands” of light and sound in an electric wonderland.
