The award was given to Helen for work with patents, for nurse-led clinics and for her contribution to cancer care publications.
Helen told ITV Border:
"I think it was nice because it was a UK award and to have been nominated and receive the award, and for someone to actually think yes, she deserves that award, it wasn't actually someone from my organisation or one of my patients that I care for that nominated me, it was people that I work with on a national and a European level, so it did mean an awful lot."
