My story

[p]Hello. In January 2004, just after her first birthday, my daughter Maggie was diagnosed with AML, an aggressive form of leukaemia. She spent six months in hospital in Bristol undergoing treatment and received incredible care from the doctors and nurses. But taking care of medical needs was just a small part of the process. Life ground to a halt and nothing else mattered. Thankfully we had help from charities who could step in and help with all the little things, like petrol costs for hospital visits, social workers and support, playrooms, a place for the family to stay. It's small but vital stuff for families coming to terms with serious illness.[/p][p]This year Care For Kids North Devon are fundraising to upgrade one of the rooms on The Caroline Thorpe Ward at North Devon District Hospital. I am the charity's patron, so I thought I'd do something to help. Maggie lost her hair as a result of her leukaemia so I thought it'd be fitting to lop mine off to mark her 15th birthday, which is on the 8th January.[/p][p]On 6th January Maggie and her sister Charlie (who was born in Bristol during Maggie's treatment) will help to chop off my lovely curly locks. It's time for a new start anyway. And what better way to do it than to raise some cash for the things that matter?[/p][p]Thanks for helping.[/p]
