Laura's Breast Cancer diagnosis was not an easy thing to come to terms with, and indeed the next 4 weeks were spent trying to understand this news while being on a whirlwind of a "rollercoaster" ride attending a dozen or more hospital appointments for a multitude of scans - each one another stressful event, as simple looks of concern or worry were just more opportunities for us to fret or convince ourselves of even worse news to come.
At this time as we cried on each others shoulders, we had the support of our families, but we also managed to find support at Maggie's.
My own story follows wandering into Maggie's on the Royal Oldham site as I awaited Laura during yet another scan. Bernie (Maggie's Centre Head) didn't probe, didn't intrude, but on this day, I think she just saw I was lost (in more ways than one) and offered me a brew, sat me down and then listened as I opened up.
I've signed up for Culture Crawl as I’m hoping to raise much needed funds to help Maggie's continue this good work.” ---
