Someone I know has been affected by cancer.

A week ago today I was sat in my brother Nick's lounge with him, his wife Marie and a Macmillan nurse. She was telling him to prepare for the inevitable. Nick is suffering from a grade 4 Glioblastoma tumour in his brain.
I was shocked and dismayed to discover that a lot of the palliative care he is receiving is from charities. The nurses, hospices and councellors are provided by a handful of chairites and they are all struggling. They are all underfunded and this only contributes to the tragedy cancer patients and their loved ones are experiencing.
Nick will laugh when he hears I'm giving up alcohol for a month. I spent a few days with him last week and I took full advantage of his neglected booze cabinet. Delicious sherry and pink gin was had, albeit with a heavy heart.
The last time I went without a drink for more than 48 hours was when I was growing the Billie bean, so don't underestimate how challenging this will be for me!
Please give as generously as you can.

I love you bro xx

Well done Zoe and sorry for your loss. Considering how much I’ve seen you pack away on a night out in Mexico or Guatemala a whole month sober is quite an achievement ;) x
