In October Yvonne had the privilege of listening to Dr. Paul Cosford and Michelle Dench speak about their cancer journeys at Macmillan Cancer Support. Their words were inspirational.
Paul and Michelle discussed their diagnoses, and the effects that their cancer journeys have had on themselves, their family, and friends. But they are determined to live the life they want, as fully as they can, and in the spirit of helping others to be able to do the same.
“To life, whilst we have it, let’s enjoy it, with the people we’ve got with us.”— Dr Paul Cosford
Paul’s love of cycling and Michelle’s love of running have been a support and a spur to keep them going on their own paths. But far beyond that, they have undertaken marathons and endurance events to raise awareness and funds so that the very services that have helped to support them will be able to do even more for others.
So, Mike and Yvonne are going to take their advice. In memory of beloved family and friends, we've signed up for the Peak District Mighty Hike for Macmillan. This will be our training mantra:
“We rise by lifting others." — Michelle Dench
