Thank you to everyone who held a Kitchen Table Day. Anne held an event in honour of her friend Jenny who was diagnosed with stage 4 renal cancer last year. Both ladies recently visited the site and had a hard hat tour. Jenny said:
Today I felt very privileged to get a sneak peak of the new site of Maggie’s Yorkshire. It's so wonderful that this facility is coming. I visited one in Newcastle when I had just been diagnosed. I felt anxious to go in at first, not knowing what to expect. My thoughts of it being like a hospice full of sick people could not have been further from the truth. It was a wonderful, warm, safe environment for me and my family to go and just be with each other, knowing there were trained people there who were waiting to help support us.
This is what is so beautiful about Maggie’s, it’s a safe place for everyone and anyone that has been touched by cancer. I am so looking forward to the day when Maggie’s Yorkshire opens up her arms and welcomes us in.
