Thank you for visiting my page. I ask just two minutes of your time to listen to my story and why I'm doing what I can for Macmillan Nurses.
When I was 14 my dad was diagnosed with a brain tumour. For six months my family and I watched him undergo operations and tests and, worst of all, gradually lose the person we loved most. My dad was always such an inspiration to me as a man with so much good in his heart, which showed in what he gave to his family.
Seeing someone I love so much suffer under such horrible circumstances was extremely difficult to understand and cope with at such a young age. However, the support the Macmillan nurses gave to my dad, myself and my family helped us in leaps and bounds during those six months. And although my dad passed away, i think for those final months of his life were made more bearable by the Macmillan nurses. For them I am grateful, and, eight years on, have decided to cycle from London to Andalucia in Spain to raise money so that other families can receive the help and support that they need during this difficult time.
The money you donate will help fund Macmillan nurses in the NHS, where they will give emotional and practical support to cancer patients and their families. This may be in social support events to help people affected emotionally or in Advice Bureaus where families can be advised on financial and legal matters.
In my cycling trip I am trying to help in any way I can, and every penny you donate will help in some way towards victims of cancer and their families and to helping them during these difficult times. Thank you for reading.
