Gillian Thomson (33) from Drumlin Drive in Milngavie has raised £2,813 so far, for Stand Up to Cancer by standing in Milngavie precinct for 12 hours last Friday.

Gillian, who has an inoperable brain tumour, wanted to ‘give something back’ after the excellent care she’s received since she was diagnosed with cancer three years ago.

Doctors have kept her tumour under control with 11 months of chemotherapy and thanks to research carried out by Cancer Research UK Gillian took an oral drug, which had less side effects than the traditional treatment and meant that she didn’t lose her hair.

Gillian said: “Thankyou to everyone who helped me and it’s not too late to donate go to www.justgiving.com/Gillian-Thomson2013.”
