Rachel, Christie pledger and supporter
"Kev was only 45. He started being poorly in 2011. In 2013 that’s when we got the diagnosis of a neuroendocrine cancer, and then the journey with The Christie began from there really. Kev’s condition went down quite quickly. Kev died in 2014.
"It was the most difficult time of my life. You can’t change what happened, but The Christie made that time the best it could be.
"Whatever the donation, however big or little it is, it’s useful and will go to great things.
"The Christie is really an extended part of my family now. We both discussed that when something happened we wanted the money from the house to go to The Christie, because they had been such a good support to us. We wanted to give something back.
"It’s the right thing to do and it’s really good feeling to do it. You’ll feel good and you’re going to help people in the future.
"It feels like a connection. It is a really positive feeling that through our legacy we’re part of The Christie and carrying on that good work.’
