"I will be eternally grateful"
I was very low and sad, I didn’t want to put any more stress on my family, so I called the Macmillan support line. The person I spoke to listened, that was what I needed and that was what they did. I will be eternally grateful.
"Marie’s support was a life-saver."
The support I got from Marie, my Macmillan Nurse, was brilliant. Macmillan were there whenever I needed them – offering advice over the phone at any time of the day. They were just really, really great.
"Cancer affects all areas of your life."
When I was first diagnosed I was totally shell shocked – the financial worries came a bit later. I am self employed so it has been harder to navigate. Macmillan have really helped and have supported me with a grant. Cancer affects all areas of your life – Macmillan help make sense of that.
"The staff and volunteers at Macmillan in Epsom, have been amazing."
My husband David and our close friends Braved the Shave in solidarity with me. I’m so touched that they are doing this for me and I’m proud that, in doing so, they'll help give other people the same support I've had by raising money for Macmillan.
