In keeping with Oesophageal Cancer Awareness month I have been reminded by a family member that The Michael Blake Foundation’s website is worth visiting. Like so many charities this foundation was set up following the loss of a family member.
Sadly it is not until we experience a specific illness personally that we realise just how little support and information is available and all credit to those that then turn their own dificult situation into doing something really productive and help others.
Having worked within the not-for-profit sector for many years I have seen how little charities are doing really useful work in their local communities. Their website is: http://www.michaelblakefoundation.org.uk should you wish to donate, volunteer or in need of advice.
