When Kevin was diagnosed with cancer, Macmillan helped him and his wife Rachel through the toughest time of their lives.
Kevin and his wife love the summer. They live near the coast, and in the summer their days off are spent walking along the sea front, enjoying the fresh air. There’s nothing like seeing the sun shining over the beach to lift the spirits.
But last summer was different. Rather than enjoying a seaside stroll, Kevin and Rachel were struggling with their health. Rachel and Kevin both diagnosed with cancer.
They didn’t know how unwell they were going to be, or whether they would be well enough to look after one another, but fortunately the day Kevin was diagnosed he met Charlotte, his Macmillan Nurse. Charlotte helped Kevin and Rachel process the news; she took them through the answers to all their questions with patience and kindness.
