My story

[p]This time last year, my wife, Susan, took part in the Brave the Shave challenge for Macmillan, raising a substantial total for this amazing charity. She described it as "Something that she could do", after the feelings of helplessness that she felt due to the loss of our best friend Jeremy, following his 3 year battle with kidney cancer. She was keen to do her small part to help in any way that she could. 2 months later, ironically, she was diagnosed with advanced Ovarian cancer, and now it's my turn to step up.[/p][p]I knew straight away, that I had to do this in her name, and it is incredibly important to me that she gets to see me do it. Thankfully, due to efforts of the amazing medical teams that she is being treated by, including the Macmillan nurses and support staff, she is responding well to treatment, which is wonderful. [/p][p] I want to raise as much as I can for Macmillan, being Susan's favourite charity. So that others can benefit in the same way as we have. Life is precious, and life is to be lived. Macmillan helps make that happen. [/p][p]So thank you for your support, and here's hoping that I can do her proud![/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]We're here to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can, providing physical, financial and emotional support. So whatever cancer throws your way, we're right there with you.
