Help me support Macmillan

In September and October this year I'll be running two half marathons (Great North Run on Sunday 15 September and the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 6 October). At the moment I'm not in need of any extra pressure or stress in my life however I felt the need to acknowledge the fantastic support we've had from Macmillan throughout Matt's illness but especially over the last 18 months when Matt's brain tumour came back.


We have two very special Macmillan nurses, Claire Goddard and Fred Berki. I don't know how I'd have coped this past year without knowing that they were just a phone call or email away. I really don't know how they do it - they both have families, they're not meant to respond to phone calls after 1300 or reply to emails while on holiday, however they've both been guilty of taking their work home with them. Not only that, they acknowledge Matt's a real person - he's not just another patient or hospital number to them. That little bit of humanity helps make the tedious hospital appointments bearable. Claire and Fred, you don't know just how special you are.


I hope everyone touched by cancer is able to receive the same support from Macmillan that we have. If cancer and Macmillan is a cause close to your hearts, please do help me raise as much money as possible for them as I take on these two half marathons: https://www.justgiving.com/Kristine-Chadwick1
