The day I saw an advert for Brave the Shave my Aunt died. She did not die of cancer but her sister, my Gran did at 60 when I was a small child. Then I remembered many others from my family and friends who have battled with cancer, including my cousins daughter who died at 13. Many have gained great support from Macmillan whilst going through treatment and during the last precious days here on earth. It is for all of them that I am doing this.
