Cancer first impacted on my life when I was at University. One of the girls I met died in my final year. She had battled bravely with cancer most of her life. She not only managed to gain her degree though she also got married. Lorraine was funny, intellgent and always hopeful and I raise my own glass to her every Dec 1st.
This past year has been hard for us as a family. I helped nurse my popa through cancer and at times I really struggled watching him become so poorly. My once strong and chunky Popa became a shadow of his former self. He became weak and fragile and not the Popa who had carried me on his shoulders as a child. We also have a family friend, a new mum who was diagnosed with breast cancer. Cancer has touched most of us in some way, whether directly or indirectly. Not many of us will not have been impacted in some way.
Celebrity mum of two Frankie Bridge is asking UK shoppers to be part of history. To help reach a huge £500,000 raised for Marie Curie as part of the #FeelSuper campaign; where every purchase of donating P&G products at Superdrug, including Oral B, Olay and Gillette, triggers a donation via Superdrug Marie Curie – the UK’s leading terminal illness charity.
This comes as figures from Marie Curie reveal that half of the UK’s over 50’s are not confident they will get the care they need towards the end of their life, and nearly a fifth (19%) of people who have lost someone, feel that better end of life care could have helped them preserve memories of happier times.
In its third consecutive year, the #FeelSuper campaign, in partnership with Superdrug continues to go from strength to strength. With a historic £500,000 in sight, Frankie has been looking back on the successes of the campaign so far. The continued support from Superdrug shoppers has impacted on the lives of people living with terminal illnesses, their friends and families. Not only does Frankie want to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped so far, but show them how their contributions to the campaign have had a direct impact on so many lives. And why it is so important to keep up the good work.
Frankie says, “I’ve seen first-hand the effect money raised through the #FeelSuper campaign has on the lives of those living with terminal illnesses, their friends and their families. I want to thank everyone who has supported us so far and ask them to get behind us once again and get to our goal of £500,000. It’s so easy to get involved, simply treat yourself to your everyday purchases such as Oral-B toothpaste or Pantene shampoo and ‘Feel Super’ knowing that your small purchase is making a big difference.”
Therefore you too can make a diffference by purchasing your everyday products from Superdrug. Adding to that goal of raising £500,000. This money will help those who have a terminal diagnosis. To give those families the care and support they need at one of the most difficult times. Marie Curie were stepping in to help us in Popa’s final few weeks. Although in the end we didn’t get that far, as he died in hospital, it was a peace of mind knowing we had their support.
