Leukaemia CARE Community Ambassadors
Leukaemia CARE has been hard at work recruiting volunteer Community Ambassadors, based around the UK. They are a network of individuals who attend events to represent Leukaemia CARE, and are able to share their knowledge of Leukaemia CARE.
- Paul Lydon (Bedfordshire)
"Being an Ambassador is for me a dual involvement in the work of Leukaemia CARE. Firstly, I can help spread the word about the work of Leukaemia CARE, the support, assistance and care it provides to leukaemia and lymphoma sufferers. Secondly, I hope I can help on a more personal level acting as I do as a CAREline volunteer, speaking with , and hopefully providing support to those who are experiencing either directly or indirectly from one of the blood cancers."
- Jackie Tipton (Worcester)
"After receiving such vital support, I am glad to be able to give something back to LC. I also think it is necessary to try and raise the profile as much as possible."
- Stuart Johnson (Wigan)
"The role of ambassador for such a worthy organisation means so much to me. It is both an honour and a privilege to be able to assist in raising the profile of the organisation by improving public awareness towards the charity and many of the issues faced by those affected by leukaemia."
- June Hughes (Weston Super Mare)
"It means a lot to be an ambassador, as I have a lot to give and I care and would love to share my talents if it helps anyone."
- Chanelle Thornton (London)
"I feel very proud to be an ambassador for Leukaemia CARE as I have seen first hand the huge benefit that their unique services can have. The charity offers vital and personalised support to people who are often very desperate. Having had leukaemia myself I know how valuable it can be to have someone to talk to. Through my involvement with the charity I have met some amazing people and been thoroughly inspired. It has helped me turn a dark period in my life in to a wonderfully positive outcome and I would be thrilled if I had helped to introduce others to Leukaemia CARE."
I feel very privileged to be a Leukaemia CARE Ambassador. I was initially involved as a Buddy, but was then invited to become an Ambassador, meaning that I can represent the organisation at various functions, and maybe help more of my fellow patients, through their experiences. I work closely with the organisation, to help improve things for people affected by cancer.
"In March of this year, the nicest, most caring person and my good friend, Michelle Moss, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia, at the age of 27 following the birth of her second little girl, Pheobe. Hearing this news really rocked my world. I contacted Leukaemia CARE and decided to make a commitment, spending one day a week dedicated to arranging events, raising awareness and raising money. The reality of it is that the work that I do is only a small contribution. My aim is to raise awareness of the symptoms of leukaemia, how important Bone Marrow Donations are and to raise money to help find an answer for all types of Leukaemia."
