A cancer diagnosis was the last thing Stafford resident Paul Giles expected at 57 years old. After a long career with the RAF, Paul was a keen sportsman who kept himself fit and healthy. Even after leaving the Forces would think nothing of cycling 30 miles at a time.
“I’d never seen the inside of a hospital before. I never smoked, drank only moderately and exercised five or six times a week – I was in the gym right up until the night before I was diagnosed – but all that is never going to prevent you from getting something like cancer. Cancer takes no prisoners,” said Paul.
To mark Diabetes Awareness week (12 - 18 June) doctors at Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are urging people to be aware of the symptoms so they can access support that is currently available for those who suffer from diabetes.Read more on Diabates and what to do.
