My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. [/p][p]At 10am on Sunday 28th September 2014, I will embark upon my quest to complete the Baxters Loch Ness Marathon, in an attempt to raise money for PATCH. [/p][p]Founded in Dundee, PATCH's aim is to ensure that every patient, in every hospital throughout Scotland, can be confident that they will receive specialist palliative care, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, should they need it. [/p][p]Palliative care refers to the active, all-round care of patients whose disease or illness is not responsive to curative treatment. The role of a palliative care team is to manage a patient's pain relief and symptoms, and to offer psychological, social and spiritual support if desired. In other words, the role of a palliative care team is to enhance a patient's life at a time when days, hours and minutes are precious. [/p][p]With the help of donations PATCH will fund hospitals to develop palliative care services from which Scottish patients can benefit, whether it be through the provision of dedicated beds, staff, advisory services or research. [/p][p]Most of us have known and loved someone that could or could have benefited from PATCH's efforts. When I run my marathon, I will run each step in honour of those in need of quality palliative care, both past and present. Supporting PATCH ensures that in future, we will all receive the care we deserve, during the last stages of our lives. In my opinion there is no greater investment. [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations in advance! [/p]
