VIDEO: World Cancer Day: How Cancer Has Affected Me
4 Feb 2016 at 13:44
This is a video to mark World Cancer Day. I was asked to record something which reflected how cancer had impacted on me and my family. I spoke about my Godmother, Eleanor Daniels, who sadly died in 2007. She may not have been a blood relative, but to us she was. She was a major influence on me and my two sisters, Tracey Hunter and Sheena Dale and was my mother’s lifelong best friend from childhood. We all still miss her hugely.
In the last few weeks a friend of mine lost his mother to cancer. A close friend of mine and John’s has been diagnosed with breast cancer. And this week the father of a work colleague has had an operation to remove cancer. It affects all of us. If you can make a donation to fight cancer, please do so. Nowadays, if some cancers are caught early, they can be caught in time.
