Supporting Cancer Research & Care

Picture of a woman walking past a whitewashed building

Taking a short break from Islay blogging today, as I have for a number of years now. Long time readers might remember that my mother died of pancreatic cancer 3.5 years ago. Today would have been her birthday.

The picture on the right shows my mother during what was going to be her last visit to Islay in June 2007, about eight months after she was diagnosed and nine months before she died. A visit I firmly believe was only possible because of the progress in medical research and the excellent treatment she received. Which leads me to my recurring appeal to support some of these cancer related charities:

My birthday present for my mother will be on its way shortly. Normal service to resume tomorrow.
