Story

The Phoenix Unit is a Chemotherapy, Haematology and Infusion Day Unit at Sunderland and is recognised as a leading Cancer Unit and is part of the North of England Cancer Network. They are an overarching “hub” for a range of settings for the provision of chemotherapy service – hospital, home and outreach – depending on a patient’s preference and treatment type.
It was the Phoenix Unit that treated my Uncle in his last fight against cancer, and who cared for him into his final days. My whole family is going to join in the Boxing Day Dip to raise money for the excellent doctors, nurses, HCAs, and auxilliary staff who continue the daily struggle to treat and eventually cure cancer.

    Our T-shirts are ready! It's just over a month until we go fleeing into the North Sea like maniacs after being hosed down by firemen oh god what are we doing! I've decided on foam for the wings, and safety pins. Just little wings, to give a hint of phoenix, cos otherwise we'll drown with the weight of them! Thank you to you very generous donors so far <3 <3 <3 <3 You are THE BEST.

    So apparently we go in up to our shoulders. Into the ocean. In December. In Seaburn. Where the water is icy in July. GUYS. In other news, I'm excited because I have ~*~crafty plans~*~ to make this group of insane people that I call family into god damn PHOENIXES. I've been madly googling DIY wings, phoenix wings etc, but nothing meets my expectations so this weekend I'm recruiting my baby cousin and my second mammy, and we are gonna go shopping for supplies! Time for a try-or-die DIY...

I'm a HUGE Nerd, and I hate cancer. It's stolen two people from my life so far and it's lurking around like a god damned curse. I'm doing what little I can to fight it, by raising money for charities and hospital units that carry the fight right to cancer's door. With SCIENCE!
