Macmillan Cancer nurses do a tremendous job in very difficult circumstances and deserve all the support they can be given.

Totally agree.
I Think you have to be a genuine person with plenty of empathy to do this type of work.

As they deal in end of life care they must work under constantly difficult circumstances.

You will find many places around the country are holding coffee mornings for Macmillan this Friday.  Even our local Vets is here!

I have regular contact with a couple of part Macmillan funded nurses - one at Wycombe General and the other at Stoke Mandeville.
The one at Stoke was the person who told me I'd been diagnosed with bladder cancer and I still see him once a year for  urethra check.
The one at Wycombe is a lovely girl and co-ordinated my surgery and still see her when I go for CT scan results. Always get a hug.

That's nice. Something a lot of modern nurses forget - compassion.

A pub near here is taking part (http://www.keelmanslodge.co.uk) and, yes, they have assured me that beer will be available as well as coffee  Grin
