Worcester friends cycle for Breast Unit

Two Worcester friends are undertaking a cycling challenge in March 2021 to raise money for the Worcestershire Breast Unit where one of the men’s wife was treated successfully for breast cancer.

Alex Smith aged 34 and Alex Dance aged 35 from Worcester city centre are undertaking one hundred miles each on their bikes to raise money for the Worcestershire Breast Unit charity. 

Alex Smith’s wife Ashley was a patient at the Worcestershire Breast Unit following her diagnosis in July 2018 and the two friends want to repay the excellent  treatment she received there.

“Alex and I are keen cyclists and are looking forward to undertaking some extra miles during March in aid of this amazing local charity,” said Alex Smith.  “My wife Ashley was so well looked after by the Worcestershire Breast Unit team and her consultant Rachel Bright-Thomas, with Rachel King as her breast care nurse Both of them were amazing: they not only helped Ash, but me and the kids too. She really helped us get through it. Ashley is happily really well so Alex and I want to show our gratitude on behalf of our family and friends.  Fundraising in this way throughout March is something that I can do.”
