Story

[p]Thank you for visiting this page and hopefully following Rachel's request to donate money you might have spent on flowers, to charity. And here are the four charities we chose...[/p][p]Macmillan. The Macmillan Staff at St. George's Hospital were so helpful and caring from the first diagnosis last year and throughout the time since.[/p][p]Marie Curie. During the last month or so, Marie Curie nurses came to our home overnight on many occasions to watch over Rachel and allow me to get an uninterrupted night's sleep which was invaluable. They also gave support and advice and a nurse, Bernice, was here last Saturday morning to help me during Rachel's last moments.[/p][p]St Raphael's Hospice. Again, over the last few months, staff from the hospice, particularly Bernadette, were incredibly helpful. They dealt with and prescribed the medication needed to control Rachel's pain and other symptoms, liaised with other agencies, district nurses, our GP, the care service, to ensure Rachel was getting the right care. They also loaned us equipment to help with the practical things. And finally, from time to time they sent a nurse through their "Hospice at Home" scheme to sit with Rachel for an hour or so allowing me to go out for coffee, get some shopping done, visit the chemist, all the little jobs, and this made things so much easier for both me and Rachel.[/p][p]Finally, The Suzy Lamplugh Trust. Rachel was chief executive for seven years and loved working there, leading campaigns on lone worker safety and stalking among other things. The Trust will continue to bring these issues to the attention of MPs, peers, the police and other decision makers, and of course run the National Stalking Helpline.[/p][p]See these charities' websites for more info on what they do and how they helppeople, often at times of great need.[/p][p]All donations will be split 4 ways, so if you could give £20, £5 will go to each of these very special and deserving charities.[/p][p]Thanks very much.[/p][p]Dave x[/p]
