Bournemouth: Badges to boost confidence of cancer survivors
By Charlotte Andrews
A woman has been handing out merit badges to cancer survivors in a bid to spread positivity.
Susie Pinner from Bournemouth struggled to regain her confidence and feel "normal" again after she was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in 2021.
Noticing others also grappled with completing everyday tasks, the 52-year-old started the Pinners Award Club.
Members get rewarded for "small wins" like planning meals, decluttering the home and keeping houseplants alive.
Ms Pinner faced a year of treatments and surgeries following her diagnosis, including chemotherapy and a double mastectomy.
