Helen turned 40 last year. She’s married to Mark and between them they have 3 daughters aged between 11, 15 and 18. She qualified as a nurse in 2004 before becoming an Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) in 2017. Her career has involved both intensive care and respiratory work. When Covid hit she was on the front line, working with critically ill patients.
It was after she fell ill with Covid herself that she noticed a chest pain she couldn’t quite shake. It was this that eventually led her to become diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2021.
