My story

[p] At the end June, weather permitting, I plan to undertake my biggest ever challenge and climb Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain. It rises 4,809m (15,777 ft) and is ranked 11th highest in the world.[/p][p] I plan to take this opportunity to raise money for two very worthwhile charities; The Royal Marines Charity and Maggie’s Cancer Centres. [/p][p] [/p][p][b]The Royal Marines Charity[/b] is uniquely placed to understand and support Marines and their families to overcome their challenges, from life changing injury or limiting illness, to mental disability, transition to civilian life and even poverty, providing the support they need to ensure no one is left behind.[/p][p] Through generous donations The Royal Marines Charity further helps provide bereavement support to family members, recovery support, grants, financial support, support to help them recover from medical conditions, injuries and much more. A particular focus moving forward is how to best support the mental wellbeing of serving and retired Marines and their families, looking out especially for those who have become vulnerable through the stresses of service. Their network and working with external partners, can target support across every need to ensure the best possible assistance for the whole Corps [/p][p] [b]Maggie’s[/b][b] Cancer Centres [/b] offer free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends. Help is offered freely to anyone with any type of cancer. The Maggie’s Centres are created to be an oasis on the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals. Every Maggie’s has an expert team providing practical and emotional care for people with cancer as well as their loved ones. Maggie’s has 22 centres across the UK and overseas. Their goal is to have a Maggie’s at all 63 specialist cancer hospitals in the UK and enable their support services to reach out to people in need throughout the world.[/p][p] Whilst medical teams based in NHS hospitals focus on giving the best possible clinical care, they simply do not have time to help process the overwhelming influx of information that comes with a diagnosis. At Maggie’s they do![/p][p]? I have been training hard these past few months to try to get myself in shape for this climb. I confess, I thought it would be easier and the aches and pains would be receding, but I was clearly wrong! [/p][p]It would be great if you could consider supporting me on this journey for these two very worthwhile causes. I hope to split equally what I raise between them.[/p][p] You can either link directly through to my Virgin Money Giving page [url=https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=lisa.ronson&pageUrl=1]https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=lisa.ronson&pageUrl=1[/url][/p][p] [u]or donate directly by forwarding me a cheque made payable to:[/u][/p][p] [/p][p]The Royal Marines Charity[/p][p] Maggie’s Centres[/p][p] Thank you for all your support[/p][p] Very best wishes[/p][p] Lisa[/p][p] [/p]
