Gamers Beat Cancer

My name is Hattie McHugh and I am part of the Shine Facebook group. I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer at 28yrs in October 2019, 2 months before my wedding. We moved our wedding forward and I started treatment. I had a scan in March to see how my treatment was doing and it found that my cancer had spread and I was now stage 4 breast cancer. My husband is an avid gamer and has been really keen to get me to join him. He is trying to get me to play ‘Stardew Valley’ as he thinks I will enjoy it and it will keep my mind off everything. I’m having another operation soon and will on bed rest for at least 3 weeks and home for another 5. He has been also been looking at getting me a switch as apparently there is a wide variety of games that we could do together but unfortunately we cannot afford it at the moment.

Through “The Gift Of Gaming” we were able send Hattie a limited edition Pokemon Switch Lite.
