      I always enjoyed science, especially physics, at school and then my mum had cancer just as I was leaving school. I watched her getting all her treatment and decided I wanted a career which helped people with cancer. I didn’t want to be a doctor as the hours are terrible and I knew I wanted to do physics, so Medical Physics was the obvious choice.
