A Day for Kidney Cancer Patients……..

It’s the James Whale Fund Kidney Cancer Patient day on the 18th November.  The day after my birthday as it happens, but that’s a different story, however, as a slight aside,  for those of you who are wondering what I want for my birthday, well that’s simple, what I want is a donation from each of you to the Arch to Arc challenge. We’ve raised 6% of the £20,000 target so far (not bad for a couple of weeks effort), but still a long way short of the target.

Anyway, moving on, I have to say I’m really excited about the prospect of meeting other Kidney Cancer patients, their families and carers.  It’s so hard when we’re all stuck behind computers and forums and facebook etc…. so much nicer to meet face to face and exchange stories and experiences.  Every time I’ve been to something like this I’ve never regretted it and have always come away having learnt something, at the very worst I’ve made new friends.

The great thing of course is that it’s entirely free for Kidney Cancer patients, families and carers, in fact I like anything that’s free, but I suppose that’s the northerner in me coming out!

I’ve been to a fair few of the James Whale Fund events over the last couple of years and I’ve enjoyed each of them, and met all sorts of people that have enriched my life in one way or another. So not to sound too much like an advert …. Sign up and  get yourselves along to it! (I’ll be the one in cycling shorts and a bow tie).

See you all there!
