Having attended many empowering courses and classes at the amazing Penny Brohn Cancer Centre, and met some wonderful people along the way, I feel I really want to give something back. The experience has changed my life, 9 years of 'cancer drug' induced insomnia gone! I am now a far calmer person, more able to deal with the stress of everyday living and live in the moment rather then dwell in the past/worry about the future.
By accident, I came across the Give As You Live site giveasyoulive.com. It is such a simple, easy way to raise money for your chosen charity. If you shop on line for anything from clothing, travel, hotel accommodation, flights, grocery shopping - the list is endless, I would advise you to check it out. I recently booked a 4 day hotel stay which raised £25 - great, all I had to do was log into giveasyoulive.com site first. This is a great way to fundraise without having to climb a mountain or run a race. I emailed everyone of my contacts and asked them to do the same - snowball effect. My daughter and some of her friends now do their weekly Sainsbury's online shop, Penny Brohn gets 1-4% of the total bill.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. I wish you every success with your cancer journey - at Penny Brohn you are in safe hands.
