Their unit was full of fun and hope, and other teenagers and families in the same situation, just helping each other get through their day.[/p] [p]It was more like a cool flat than a hospital unit, with games, a kitchen and all the tech stuff that teenagers need to hang out.  I really love what the TCT do.  Following my son’s treatment hell, he joined the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust for an amazing week- again joining others ‘in the same boat’. He is doing fine now and so are we. We cannot thank these two charities more.  Please help us say thank you to them by sponsoring us.[/p] [p]I'm Debbie, and I’m joining my (current;-)) friend Suzy on the tandem. Having seen her go to hell and back,  I thought the least I could do is go to John O’Groats (but not back) with her.  I’ve had my own brush with cancer too, and dear mum died of it recently.   Mum knew she dying, but her spirit was  never crushed.  Her strength and courage is the thing I’ll always remember, cherish and be grateful for.  The magic of the two great charities that we are supporting is that they help teenagers be in their best possible spirits at the worst possible times. That is the reason I love and value their work. Whatever life throws at us it is our [i]spirit[/i] that makes the difference.[/p][p]Thanks for your donations, it means a lot to us and to all those young people out there with and recovering from cancer.[/p][p]Lots of love[/p][p]Debbie and Suzy[/p] [p][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0cm; margin-bottom: .0001pt; background: white;"[gt][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0cm; margin-bottom: .0001pt; background: white;"[gt][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us 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. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/44bClCJGGHU?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3"][/vmgvideo]
