Macmillan Cancer Support

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

So this is my last drink for a month.
It’s a good one. A delicious gin pinched from my brothers booze cabinet.
He is still with us. These are his final days and only the occasional beeping of the syringe drivers and occasional moments of alertness disturb his sleep.
It has been terribly difficult and sad. A huge amount of distress for him and his wonderful wife Marie. He does not deserve this. Who does.
The NHS is woefully underfunded in terms of end of life care. They rely of charities like Macmillan and Marie Curie to provide respite care and night care in the home. And it is not enough.
Please donate what you can.

Cheers.

Sleep well brother x
