Heidi Bell, wife of BlogtorWho news editor Robin Bell, is raising money for Nightingale House, a hospice that has provided them with much-needed care and support since Robin was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer.
It is with the heaviest of hearts that I write this post, but I also hope that it will reach out to our many, lovely followers because it’s about one of our own. We don’t often raise individual heads above the parapet at BlogtorWho and we are very grateful that Robin and Heidi have agreed to let us talk about their story.
While doing the very challenging job of being BlogtorWho’s news editor as well as being a producer and writer for Twisted Showcase Robin discovered that he had stage 4 stomach cancer just before Christmas 2017. Robin and Heidi have been supported by Nightingale House Hospice, a specialist palliative care centre in North Wales, where they live.
Nightingale House Hospice provides care that is completely free-of-charge to those patients and their families that use it. But that doesn’t mean it costs nothing to run, of course, and the centre relies on volunteers and fund-raising to continue with the incredible, invaluable work it does in providing care for people with life-limiting illness.
Heidi Bell wants to give back to Nightingale House Hospice for the much-needed care and support it has given her and Robin. She will be doing a 10k Midnight Walk on 16 June 2018 to raise funds for the centre.
I know there are many great Just Giving causes out there set up by nice, good people wanting to help good causes and ease suffering, but this one is special to us at BlogtorWho because Robin is special to us at BlogtorWho.
If you can give just a few pennies to this cause that’s so special to us, we will love you forever, but more importantly, you’ll be helping people like Robin and Heidi as they face what they know will be the most difficult of times.
Please head to Heidi’s Just Giving page and donate whatever you can. Your pennies, pound, fiver or tenner will make a huge difference to Nightingale House Hospice, and Robin and Heidi will be able to see your lovely act and your kind words, which will mean so much to them. And to all of us at BlogtorWho.
Thank you in advance you lovely people from the whole team at BlogtorWho.
