This time last year I was having chemotherapy at Clatterbridge Cancer Hospital and this time two years ago I was having radiotherapy there. I wanted to give something back so today, our Sue and I volunteered at the hospital to spread some festive cheer. We delivered mince pies to the patients on the wards and they went down a storm!
When I was receiving treatment I was really grateful to the wonderful volunteers who gave up their time to help make this hospital the amazing place that it is. Whether it was to bring treats to the wards, give us massages or just pop up for a natter, I found these people an absolute God send. So I know that we helped today. We helped to cheer up some people who were receiving treatment and going through some of the darkest days of their lives. I look forward to helping again.
Please remember those who are facing a difficult Christmas and also those wonderful people working tirelessly to keep the hospital running 24/7.
Cancer doesn’t take a break for Christmas.
