Giving to Cancer Research

Lavender ribbon - cancer awarenessOver the course of December, we’ve been giving away all sorts of tips and goodies for you to enjoy as part of our Christmas Calendar. Today, we’ve decided to give differently.

The greatest thing we all have to be grateful for is our health, which gives us the freedom to do what we want and live the life we want. We can now live longer and healthier than ever before. However, cancer is a vicious illness which can affect our loved ones much too easily. My cousin suffered from leukaemia in her teens but came out healthy and strong, and MacStories‘ Viticci is fighting his own battle, as he shared recently.

Unfortunately, there is still much we don’t understand about cancer and some, like Steve Jobs, don’t necessarily win their fight.

We will be donating £1000 to Cancer Research UK this Christmas, hoping that together we can make a difference.

  1. Kudos for making such a generous donation to Cancer Research UK. Great to hear your cousin came out healthy and strong after her bout with Leukemia. Hopefully Viticci will have an equally triumphant story to share before too long. I came face to face with an agressive Stage 4 cancer in 2008 and went into remission about six months later after a roller-coaster ride through chemo and a major surgery…and am feeling great today and full of life. Through the process I really learned to value my health at a new level…and how precious time is (all the more reason to use fabulous software like Alfred to keep things efficient :).

  2. Wow! Such a generous gift. And I thought it wouldn’t be possible to love Alfred any more! May you all have the merriest of Christmases :-)
