A Dundee accountant, who received a life-changing cancer diagnosis while pregnant with her son, has thanked her ‘incredibly generous’ colleagues for their year-long fundraising campaign.

Paula McAllister, Senior Manager with EQ Chartered Accountants in Dundee and mum to one-year-old Rhys, was diagnosed with bowel cancer in August 2017, when she was seven and a half months pregnant. Since then, Paula has endured 16 rounds of chemotherapy and a major operation and is now on a break from treatment with regular monitoring, while also working part-time.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year?
