Harlequins and England rugby player Danny Care has announced Breast Cancer Haven as one of his chosen charities to benefit from his Testimonial Year.

 

Danny Care's pace and invention have made him one of the most dangerous operators in world rugby and he has been a regular on the international stage since making his breakthrough in 2008 and now boasts 73 caps for England. He is the highest scoring scrum half in Premiership history, and England’s second most capped scrum half.

 

Danny’s Mum Sherry used the services of Breast Cancer Haven Leeds during her treatment for Breast Cancer.

 

“Breast Cancer Haven is an outlet where you feel you can be honest about your fears, be completely yourself and away from putting on a brave face for your family and friends. At a time when you can feel very vulnerable, it provides a warm and safe environment to voice any negative feelings you may have, ask questions which you may have embarrassed to ask the medics about and generally feel you are far from alone in what you are going through.” Sherry

 

“I am looking forward to helping raise funds for Breast Cancer Haven through my testimonial year.  The service provided is essential to help support woman going through breast cancer.” Danny

 

Danny will be one of three celebrity supporters joining Breast Cancer Haven at our annual carol service on 13 December 2017 at St Paul’s, Knightsbridge.
