Melanie Osborne was our friend and colleague. She was a Consultant Anaesthetist at the University Hospital of South Manchester (also known better as Wythenshawe Hospital), where she worked as a Consultant in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine until her untimely death from breast cancer in May of this year. She had lived with the diagnosis of breast cancer for several years, and during the extensive and debilitating treatment she received during that time she continued her duties, juggling family life with husband Alan, children Charlotte and Josh and her role of Clinical Director, with an attitude of such astounding forbearance that it was easy to forget the fact that she was undergoing treatment for the disease.

Melanie had a no-nonsense, matter-of-fact and selfless attitude to life. Prior to her death, she requested that there be no flowers, but donations made to charities aimed at researching and eradicating breast cancer: by sponsoring one of the “Miles for Melanie’ participants, we will be fulfilling that request and in so doing honouring the memory of a truly exceptional person and helping to fight a disease that impacts on us all. 

We are supporting Prevent Breast Cancer who are the first ever Charity of the Year Partner for Prudential RideLondon 46. Our RideLondon team is composed of many who knew and worked with Melanie, as well as others who share our enthusiasm for the cause: please donate generously!!
