I’ll be running for Maggie’s Cancer Centres this October in the half marathon event of the Great Scottish Run. (Wipe that grin off your face…)
Maggie’s is an incredible organisation who help those who have been diagnosed regain their footing. From being an understanding shoulder to lean on over a cup of tea, to providing workshops with make-up tips to counter the skin conditions that arise from treatment.
If you are the 1 in 3, Maggie’s is a place to meet others who are going through the same experiences, for your friends and family to get information and advice on how to support you; what you’re going through. Cancer doesn’t need to be an isolating experience thanks to these centres and the people who run and attend them.
If you’d like to check out their website or point someone you know in their direction: www.maggiescentres.org
If you’d like to donate, even if it’s a pound, or that extra drink at the pub I’d be incredibly greatful and you’d be helping me push towards the finish line.
Otherwise, as I usually do when doing the Race for Life, whether donating or not I’d like to ask you to check the signs of Breast, Prostate and Lung/Bowel cancer; know them and know yourself.
