HELP A HOSPICE: Charity begins at home for Chalfont St Peter lady

 Published on: 26th September 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

A woman from Chalfont St Peter is using her business to support a hospice which helped her during her battle with breast cancer.

Sarah Cassidy (second left in pictured), director of Place Estate Agents, created an initiative which will see £100 donated to Rennie Grove Hospice Care for every house sold through her agency.

Celebrating the companies tenth anniversary, Sarah wanted to give back to Rennie Grove who helped her through her battle with cancer.

After beating the illness in 2012, Sarah received the news that it had returned and was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer in 2016 and was put under palliative care at Rennie Grove.

She said: “I went to the doctors as I was suffering from severe pain in my hip and was shocked to be told the cancer had returned and had spread to several organs, joints and bones.

“I was admitted to Rennie Grove because my GP thought they could really help me, and they did. In reality, they really helped me to manage the pain.

“Alongside the massages to ease the pain, they gave me advice and support for me and my family which is vital in them situations.”

After being discharged from the hospice and getting the all clear from doctors, Sarah pledged to help the charity.

The initiative is to last over a six-month period and is eligible on properties for sale or rent in Chalfont St Giles, Chalfont St Peter, Rickmansworth, Gerrards Cross and surrounding areas.

Sarah explained: “The charity is vital to people. When you’re going through the experience of a loved one dying, they know how to help and guide you and manage the pain.

“Rennie Grove is exceptional, and it makes me happy that every house we sell in the initiative will be going towards helping people.”

Sarah also wanted to raise awareness of her story to remind people that cancer can impact anyone.

“Nobody thinks they’re going to get it, but it happens. They say that in one in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime which is scary, so its important people are aware,” said Sarah.
