“My personal motivation to help Solving Kids’ Cancer is twofold, firstly to learn more about cancer treatment and care, having lost family members to cancer-related diseases and secondly to demonstrate the important contribution to society that a user-led charity makes.

In my professional life, I believe I have gained more experience and empathy in working alongside and within charities and firmly believe that charities and the people that work within them, make an invaluable contribution to society and at their heart, are a force for good.”
