I get a fair few requests to mention this and that and if I have the time sometimes I will, however usually these are things that are of interest or importance to my myself, I've probably left this a little late to mention and nobody's asked me, but its important to me, every year Macmillan cancer support hold their "Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning" it's this Friday the 24th September.
It was a Macmillan nurse who had the time and skill to explain the severity of my eldest sister's illness, herself a nurse/midwife, simple enough I suppose but not something her doctor could manage, anyway this knowledge allowed my sister, to make the most of her last week. Without that intervention, my sister might not have had the chance to spend a final few hours with family.
Macmillan, campaigns, helps and advises those effected by cancer, obviously cancer treatment has improved considerably over the last few years, but people will always need help from organisations like Macmillan, so this Friday you can help them to help you or someone you know.
Macmillan have a link on their website to local coffee mornings, which are open to the public like M&S Cafes click here for those in Margate, you can use the same page to search your own town. Its some years, now since my sister past on, but I think of her most days and once in a while I thank Macmillan for giving me and her family the chance to be together briefly.
Still if you can't get to one of these mornings you can always donate click here.
