#CharityTuesday: 90 Words for Breakthrough Breast Cancer

The lovely Kate On Thin Ice is looking for 90 bloggers to write 90 words about a woman they admire to help raise awareness of Breakthrough Breast Cancer. They are currently running a simple campaign:
“Pink Ribbon Bingo have pledged to support Breakthrough Breast Cancer all year round with 15% of the gross revenue accrued through online play on the site being donated to the charity. Visitors also have the opportunity to donate a percentage of their winnings directly to the charity. Along with the fundraising element, Pink Ribbon Bingo and The Daily Mail online will be helping the charity to raise awareness by promoting their vital health messages such as TLC (Touch, Look, Check).
So here are my 90 words:

My Granny Kay was a special lady to lots of us. She had her own brush with breast cancer at the age of 89. Luckily she was successfully treated and lived for another 9 years. She was an inspirational lady and still living independently right to the end. A hockey player in her younger days she was a rambler and crown green bowler for many years. She was also a demon bridge and Scrabble player. Mother of 3, granny of 7 and great-granny to 14 she left a great legacy.
