Lisa Holland (oncology specialist nurse and Secretary to Trustees)
I took over the role of oncology specialist nurse in June 2012, having previously worked on Mulbarton ward for several years, latterly as ward sister. One of my first ‘tasks’ was to create a support group/network for patients with testicular cancer, and so It’s On The Ball was born. During those first meetings I didn’t anticipate how this would take off, but it is all thanks to the immense hard work of all the guys involved. I am sure there are even greater things to come and I feel proud of what we have achieved in such a short space of time. Our message is simple – check your balls every month and if you think something is wrong, contact your GP. It could be one of the best things you’ve ever done.
