Help Me to Help The Christie!!!!!

I need your help. From October 9th to the 16th - it is Christie Week. Last year they raised £80,000 but this year we are hoping to raise even more.
The reason I am so involved is because I've had direct contact with The Christie over recent months. My Uncle Bill was treated there for Bowel Cancer but we unfortunately lost him in June after a 2 year battle with it. At the same time my lovely Nan was also diagnosed. It came as such a shock but we were determined to beat it. She started chemo at the The Christie but took ill shortly after suffering a heart attack and a brain bleed - we thought we were going to lose her, she was so poorly. But the plucky little trooper fought on - and we are very proud of her.
After a break to allow her other illnesses to recover yesterday she started chemo again and this time we're hoping she can stick with it and start to feel a bit better. So it was a full day in Outpatients. Sitting there in the waiting room, looking round it's clear this disease doesn't pick you based on your age, gender, colour or religion - it picks EVERYONE!
If the doors were open 24 hours a day I still don't think they could see everyone. The more cash we raise the better care these people, who are YOUR releatives will get - and we can move a step closer to finding a cure!
So how can you help?
I've also chosen a cupcake which you can buy to help raise money. Pop into the Sweet Tooth Cupcakery in Chorlton or The Northern Quarter and £1 for every cake will go directly to The Christie. You could have a cupcake party, get your pals over, or take them into work to sell. I'll also be donning my pinny and selling them in The Christie during Christie Week.
For any more information go to the website above, and thank you in advance.
