NICTN send massive congratulations to Hazel Carson, a member of the NI Cancer Research Consumer Forum, who has been awarded a MBE in the New Year Honours for services to people with genetic high risk of cancer in Northern Ireland.
Hazel is very deserving of this award and she is a total inspiration! Hazel set up BRCA Link NI BRCA Link NI Home (brcani.co.uk) , a voluntary organisation helping people to access information and support about BRCA genetic mutations whilst raising awareness of Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer. Hazel’s on-going dedication and enthusiasm are immense and her influence on services and research alike are totally invaluable alongside so much more, including the wonderful individual support she provides to so many. She shares her own story here About BRCA Link NI (brcani.co.uk).
Deserved recognition for this brilliant service to the community!
