Oxford-based Consultant Oncologist, Dr Shiroma De Silva-Minor recently completed the 36th Virgin Money London Marathon 2017.

Running in memory of her brother, she undertook the challenge for Save The Children and has so far, raised over £19,000*. The charity strives to give children a brighter future and was one that her late brother was a great supporter of.

Dr Shiroma De Silva-Minor

Having qualified in 1995, Dr De Silva-Minor trained in oncology at national centres of excellence such as the Royal Marsden and the Royal Free Hospitals. She undertook a fellowship at the world-renowned oncology centre in Toronto, Canada, The Princess Margaret Hospital, where her research was award winning. Dr De Silva-Minor specialises in the oncological management of breast cancers. Her areas of specialist interest include triple negative breast cancers, HER2 positive disease, BRCA mutation carriers, male breast cancers; and lifestyle strategies in reducing breast cancer recurrence.

GenesisCare, the UK’s leading private radiotherapy provider, has worked with Dr De Silva-Minor for many years and was delighted to match her fundraising, to ensure she reached her ambitious target.

Mark Lomax, GenesisCare – General Manager UK comments:

“We know that many of our patients face a huge personal challenge following a diagnosis, and it’s the amazing work and expertise of medical professionals like Shiroma who can make all of the difference. With this is mind, GenesisCare was only too happy to offer its support as she undertook her own challenge – and we send huge congratulations.”
