All money raised through the appeal will support: the three main cancer units across North Wales (The Alaw Unit in Ysbyty Gwynedd, The North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre in Ysbyty Glan Clwyd and the Shooting Star Unit in the Wrexham Maelor); alongside surgical and other acute services; and also primary and community services that support patients with cancer in the region. Donations will help people from the first stage of diagnosis to post treatment care, for example through support groups for survivors, and equipment and patient comforts requested by the palliative team giving end of life care.
“I’m a proud Welshman, a two-times cancer survivor, the lead singer of ‘The Alarm’ and co-founder of the Love, Hope, Strength Foundation.
I’ve been a long term supporter of cancer care in North Wales because I want to give back to the healthcare and support staff, family and friends in the area who have been by my side, and continue to be by my side, throughout my journey with cancer.
I have a song, Walk Forever by My Side, which I have adapted for this appeal. ‘By Your Side’ is dedicated to everyone in North Wales living with cancer, all those we have lost and the thousands of people in the region who will be diagnosed with cancer in the future.
Who’s by your side? The very best, supportive healthcare staff you could wish for. With the support we receive through ‘By Your Side’ and beyond the appeal, I hope that people with cancer in North Wales will also be able to benefit from the very best facilities, equipment and extra services.
Between November 2014 and May 2017 I aim to help raise £351,120; that’s £1 for every foot from Wrexham Maelor to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd to Ysbyty Gwynedd. In May 2017 I’ll then walk this distance, and I hope that you’ll be able to join me.
‘By Your Side’ will run for 30 months, but the legacy of the campaign is as important as what is achieved during these two and a half years. I’d like everyone in North Wales to know that without our additional support we can’t have the cancer services we want to have, and that we need to continue to support our local healthcare services.”
