Mike and I have attended the Living Well and Approach courses at the National Centre. On the courses they discussed practical steps that I could take. I decided to join the Nordic Walking group which takes place at the National Centre every week. When I can, I attend the group with one of my friends.
In October 2018, Mike and I took part in Stomp, a sponsored walk in aid of Penny Brohn UK. Since I was diagnosed, Penny Brohn UK has been a great help to me. I wanted to take part in the Stomp walk to give something back found it a great experience and huge achievement to walk six miles. I was touched to receive lots of generous sponsorship from family and friends.
I also have a leaf on the Tree of Life in the gardens at Penny Brohn’s National Centre. I chose to tribute my wonderfully supportive husband in the engraving on the leaf. Mike is there at every step of what is a difficult time for us. We went to the National Centre to hang the leaf on a beautiful, sunny, winter morning. The sun glinting on the copper leaves gave the whole experience a slightly magical and uplifting quality.
