A primary school teacher and a mum of 4, Lucinda was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2022. To share her story, have a bit of fun, and raise awareness too, she took part in a photoshoot we ran for people affected by breast cancer.

I’m passionate about teaching and am still in my first job after 20 years 

I’m a wife, mum, teacher and friend, and I’m part of a wonderful Jewish community. At work I’m currently teaching Year 5, which are 9–10-year-olds. At home I have 4 children - 3 girls and 1 boy, and I’m married to a very wonderful and supportive husband who is a consultant geriatrician. I’m Jewish and have a very supportive community of friends around me, which has been so important during my personal cancer diagnosis. I grew up in Northwood and now live in Hendon in Northwest London. 

I am a very busy person who finds it hard to say no 

I love being involved in the local community and run a Brownie pack which I love doing. All my girls have been Brownies and have loved it. I also get joy from swimming and zumba and I tolerate a weekly run because I think it’s good for me! I also love cooking. 

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2022 

My cancer diagnoses obviously came as a massive shock to me. I didn't find a lump but my breast looked different to usual. I had a single mastectomy in October and I’m currently having chemotherapy....1 more to go! 

I’m inspired by all the ladies I have met in real life and on social media 

They are also going through a breast cancer journey and are just so positive and strong in the face of such a horrible situation. I wanted to be involved in wear it pink because I thought it would be fun, and it absolutely was! I would encourage anyone to take part. I think it’s so important that people wear pink in October to raise awareness of breast cancer. 

Will you join Lucinda? 

Wear pink. Raise money. Help to drive forward life-changing research and support.
