Chris Anderson to RideLondon for Marie Curie Cancer Care
By Kim Morgan, on 16 January 2015
Division of Psychiatry researcher Chris Anderson writes:
“I will be riding in the Prudential RideLondon 100 this August for Marie Curie Cancer Care as part of the Daffodil Team.
I would really appreciate it if you could make a donation.
I have set a very low target of £700 to raise but would really like to achieve more than this – at least £1000 – which I do not think is too unreasonable.
I am a keen cyclist but have become more serious over the past few years. My weekly commute to work across London is 125 mile a week.
As a nurse I can fully appreciate how difficult things are for families when someone they love is terminally ill with cancer and the support provided by Marie Curie is absolutely invaluable.
As a researcher in ovarian cancer I interviewed over 1000 women as part of still ongoing research to help women survive this disease, and I am very aware of the impact this cancer and the related bowel, breast and prostate cancers, have on families.
If you could make a donation I would be extremely grateful – your support will encourage me not only on the ride itself but throughout the year on my training rides too. But most importantly it will provide much needed funding for the nurses of Marie Curie to provide the level of support cancer patients and their families need: £20 pays for the cost of 1 nurse for 1 hour!
Many Thanks, with Best Wishes
