One of the ideas that our friend Larry Rees had, but sadly he did not live to see it implemented, was a badge that could be worn by cancer sufferers who have to travel by public transport to and from their treatment, but sometimes have to stand because no seats are available. Pregnant women have had the 'Baby on Board' badges for some years and that can be a very visible sign that they need a seat; but sometimes cancer treatment can make you feel weak and wretched even though you look all right on the outside.
I am really pleased that Transport for London have now introduced a scheme that should help with this problem on a wider basis than just for cancer patients. Here is a link if you need it:
The last time I saw Larry was when he was making his way into an Underground station after we had had lunch together and I am sure he would be really pleased if this scheme helped others who faced the same difficulty making their way home.
