Christine Whitehouse (Chair)

Christine Whitehouse, TrusteeChristine is one of the founder members of Uganda Cancer Trust UK, following the diagnosis and treatment of a dear friend Lydia for breast cancer at Mulago Hospital in 2009. Wanting to help improve the information and support provided to cancer patients through the charity has given an excellent excuse for continuing to visit this lovely country and develop further friendships. Now retired from managing a software company working in the healthcare market, Christine uses her business skills within the charity, but also helps to mentor the management development within the projects.
