New Neuroendocrine Cancer Patient Ambassador

May 24, 2021

Please join us in welcoming our newest Ambassador, Maxine to the team 🦋
Maxine is 74 and previously a Deputy Head Teacher. Here’s a snippet of Maxine’s story:
💬 I’m Maxine Patterson and seventy-four years old. I was a deputy headteacher, but my first love was teaching English. I really enjoyed the connection with young people and helping them begin their adult lives.
💬 When I retired, I became involved in the U3A in my local area, establishing two Book Groups; a Creative Writing Group and a Photography Group. During the pandemic all the groups have continued remotely using zoom.
💬 I’ve always had “tummy” problems with ongoing investigations that stretched over more than twenty years. Things got serious during my final years teaching and my retirement. In 2015 there were endless visits to the doctor where I asked repeatedly was going to the toilet twelve times during the day actually normal?
