Denise Friend

I'm Denise, Trustee of Annabel's Angels.

Since being diagnosed myself in 2012 with breast cancer I can honestly say my life has changed for the better.

Odd to say I know when you think that a cancer diagnosis rocks not only your world to the core, but your family and friends around you.

If I hadn't of been diagnosed I would not of had the following happen:-

  • I would not of met a wonderful group of ladies on the Macmillan chat forum in 2012, Annabel being one of those ladies. 
  • Annabel's Angels and a new charity in that name would not of been born. 
  • I would not of discovered that I had an artistic side which enabled me to create Annabel's Angels "All Is Peaceful" Special Edition Print. Which is on sale for only £10 with all profit going to the charity.
  • Being a trustee of this amazing charity is very rewarding and humbling as my fundraising and being a member of the grants panel enables me to be involved even though I live miles away from Derby.

The team involved with Annabel's Angels are all so passionate about making a difference and I am very proud to be a part of that team.
