Story

The Maggie’s centre is a fabulous place on site of the Royal Marsden Cancer Hospital. This is a place for people to go for activities, a chat, company or change of scenery from their room… anything really. The staff are all so friendly and cheery and there’s always someone around for support in some way. We have seen it first hand, because we have been using this service all year, because cancer hit our family.

Since the 19th December 2022 we were hit in the face with the nightmare too. Going up and down the A3 has been my best friend for the past 5months! There are no words to explain how scary it must feel to be facing this illness. Everyone’s story and treatment is completely different. But it’s never easy when cancer comes in a rare and aggressive form. There’s days of tears, laughter, silliness, anger, hopelessness, vomiting, feeling human, exhaustion, not feeling human, not being able to walk, blood transfusions, loosing hair, loosing weight, loosing your dignity and identity. 

To be facing this is terrifying, 

To be watching it happening is heartbreaking, 

The thought of it happening to yourself or family member feels impossible.

Thankfully, Toby has agreed to joining these lanky spaghetti legs and cycling the Surrey hills 100 mile challenge to raise money and help people who are stuck in this situation. 

7th May from 8am we will start in the Surrey hills and pedal for 100 miles. If anyone would like to support, then scrolling through this page and leaving £1 would be amazing and so gratefully received and appreciated. You can track us on our cycle, give us a wave or a toot if you see us!

The staff at the Royal Marsden are superhuman. As a healthcare professional myself the pressures are immense and we look mainly at where the frontline and primary care staff are drowning. However, there is not enough said about cancer nurses. They are simply incredible. They are there for a cuddle when someone is sad, to sit at the end of a bed when you need a chat, to push through all of the many, many drugs needed throughout the journey and to answer all of the questions and worries day and night.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. 


I know there’s still a bit of a journey ahead with radiotherapy, more chemotherapy, a transplant and god knows how many more transfusions, 


But mum, you got this.
