Crazy Hats Charity spend time with Y13 students
Huxlow Science College welcomed Glennis Hooper and her colleague to talk to Y13 Health and Social Care students as part of a unit on physiological disorders.
Crazy Hats is a small charity based in Wellingborough. They support all aspects of breast cancer care in Northamptonshire. Crazy Hats was formed 18 years ago when its founder, Glennis Hooper, was diagnosed with breast cancer. They run support groups and have donated monies to better equip and train staff and surgeons at local hospitals.
One of the assignments that the Y13 students are working on, is a care plan for a breast cancer sufferer. Glennis spent time talking through her own experiences of diagnosis and treatment. She also educated the students on the emotional and physical impacts of living with breast cancer.
The visit was a great success and we would like to thank Glennis for their time.
