Dallas came into the fold in 2003 when she was diagnosed with cancer. After her initial treatment she returned to work as a teacher, but soon discovered she was not the same person. However, this coincided with Cavendish needing admin support, and now she works in our finance department. She felt that, in whatever way she could, that she needed to help keep the doors open for others who would hear that same awful word. Life is good, shared with her dog Archie, who features regularly in Cavendish pictures!
