“Thank you to WICCI, this money has helped me and my family at a time of real need.”
“I would encourage anyone with cancer to apply.”
“My husband was ill for almost three years and by the end I thought of our Macmillan Nurse not just as a nurse, but as a friend,” said Macmillan Cancer Support Isle of Lewis Committee member Margaret Eaves.
Margaret was first introduced to the work of Macmillan Nurses when her late husband Bob, former Chief Librarian in Stornoway, was diagnosed with cancer nearly ten years ago.
And the dedication, support, empathy and advice received throughout Bob’s illness – and in turn her son David’s subsequent cancer diagnosis – led Margaret to join the local Committee to raise funds and awareness of a service that she says ‘is way more than what you first think’.
