Biography

Lynne Hazelden is an athlete, actress, and humanitarian who was born in 1961 in England. When she was 12 years old, her mother died at the age of 48 from breast cancer that had metastasized,[2][3] having also lost her grandmother and aunt to the disease. She was a top athlete competing in finals of Schools Swimming Nationals at the age of 16 and held a record for children under 16 at her local swimming club for over 20 years. At the age of 21, she was selected to be in the first Great Britain Women's Official Water Polo Team.[3]

Film career

In 1982, she portrayed an unidentified female Rebel pilot in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, later identified in the Star Wars Customizable Card Game as Karie Neth. She continued working in the film industry, appearing in such films as Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, Curse of the Pink Panther, and the James Bond film, Die Another Day. She appeared in such television shows as Eastenders and Absolutely Fabulous, and was a stand-in on films and television for Diana Rigg, Leslie Ash and Joanna Lumley.[3] She also appeared in commercials and music videos and expanded her career to include working with special effects and producing in film, television, and radio.[4] This led to such opportunities as a Personal Assistant to Nevil Bolt and as a Floor Manager of such events as The Secret Policeman's Ball III, The Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Live Music Event at Wembley, and The Lennon Tribute in Liverpool[3] Her humanitarian efforts include working for the The Hunger Project as a transformational coach for CEOs in 1990, and in launching new client/server technologies as Technology Relations Manager for Marketing and Sales for humanitarian and entrepreneur Béla Hatvany, inventor of the CD-ROM technology.[3] In 1995, she began writing about improving communication in society as a means for achieving "peace in our lifetime,"[5] as well as writing in the spiritual and personal development genre.[6]

Cancer diagnosis

In 2001, Hazelden was diagnosed at NHS Guy's Hospital with an extremely rare acute reaction to the mercury and amalgam in her dental fillings after biopsy in 1995. This coincided with a beginning decline in her health and subsequent diagnosis of breast cancer.[3] She continued her humanitarian ventures, establishing several different organizations, including The Kind Foundation in 2002 and Planting Seeds for Peace in 2008, and began writing spiritual developmental literature in 2009.[6]

In December 2010 Hazelden underwent a mastectomy as a radical response to a breast cancer diagnosis, in order to avoid radiotherapy or chemotherapy due to the rare nature of her chemical sensitivities. Then, in October 2011, a mass in her mastectomy reconstruction—that was initially diagnosed benign earlier in July—was identified as malignant, spreading into her lymph glands. With her health compromised, Hazelden founded the Kinder Cancer Choices group as a means of raising support for her cancer treatment and in seeking and promoting cancer treatment research not widely available in the United Kingdom and in reducing the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.[2] She recently was promoting two cancer treatments she underwent: one called encapsulated chemotherapy, which had little toxicity, and another chemotherapy that involved using Lipoplatin.[3]

Cancer treatment fundrasing

With lack of funding for immunotherapy, friends and family of Hazelden began raising public awareness and funds with her through the Yes to Life—a British charity that gives direct support to cancer patients in accessing an integrative approach to their cancer care—in order to support access orthodox and alternative cancer treatment for herself and others not able to receive it due to affordability or availability. By 2013, she was listed on Yes to Life's website as one of the top three fundraisers, having helped raise £18,072.96 ($29,681.22).[7]

One such treatment was potential Dendrict Cancer Vaccine avaialble in Germany, and another was a immunotherapy cancer vaccine in Israel that was once pioneered at NHS and approved by the British National Health Service, but is no longer available in England due to lack of funding.[3]

Hazelden's nephew, David Hazelden, announced on her official website that she passed away on December 3, 2013. Her Funeral service was held on Monday, December 16, at the Worthing Crematorium, Britain.[8]
