Helen Westman

Lung Cancer Nurse Coordinator

For Helen Westman, a lung cancer nurse for over 16 years, being involved in a campaign like this was completely out of her comfort zone. However it was her frustration at seeing the impact of stigma on lung cancer patients that compelled her to be involved.

It was so important to me, to make myself feel uncomfortable so that patients with lung cancer don’t, and that’s really why I’m taking part
