I’ve been supporting MSF (Medecins sans Frontieres/Doctors without Borders) for the last few years and I’m in absolute awe of the work they do. Going into the most difficult situations and helping people in desperate need.
From being bombed in Afghanistan to working on the front line in the fight against Ebola.
Getting cancer doesn’t tend to make you feel lucky, but I do.
Because I live in the UK my cancer was found very early via free NHS screening. So I didn’t need damaging chemotherapy or radiation and my prognosis is excellent.
Because I live in the UK I was treated swiftly and efficiently in a modern hospital.
Because I live in the UK I get regular check ups and if by any chance my cancer does return I know it will be picked up quickly and I will have access to first rate treatment.
For all that we in the UK moan about our NHS, many people around the world can only dream of this (or any) level of healthcare.
So I am fundraising for MSF to help those who are not so lucky.
