Fund raising for Cancer Research UK - £2280 raised to date
We can often find the strength that helps us to fight cancer by looking for the positive changes that take place following its diagnosis. This happened when our daughter was diagnosed with a bone marrow cancer whilst studying for her degree in 'Biomedical Science, at Reading University, and she needed support during her end of year exams; cooking for her and running her back and forth to her 8 exams - while living in a local hotel where each bedroom had its own kitchen facility - meant that I would also have spare time on my hands during each of her exams.
Over the years as a Nafas Demonstrator I often had requests from members of the audience for handouts for the construction of the different backdrops and containers that enhance the floral designs I create while demonstrating.
Anticipating the spare time I might have I took a camera, boxes of floral materials and started taking pictures of the various stages of construction.
Many weeks after my return from Reading, the first booklet - "five days in a hotel bedroom" was born. When it comes to cancer the best thing anyone can say to our daughter is 'Just keep fighting it'.
When the first booklet was launched we made a point to send £1 to Cancer Research UK for every Booklet sold.
The success of booklet 1 led to the creation of booklet 2 "Winning thruppence shaped my career " and between these two booklets £2280 has been raised and sent to Cancer Research UK
