This week I heard some very sad news from home. A close friend of our family has been diagnosed with cancer. As many of you will know Macmillan is one of the charities I am trying to raise money and awareness for. A lot of people ask why I chose this particular charity and it is for this particular reason. Cancer is ruthless and does not discriminate. The sad truth is that all of us will be affected by cancer, either directly or indirectly. We need to support charities that are working to find a cure and for charities that are supplying much needed support to those affected by this awful condition.
