Who says horror writers don't care? Laura Mauro, one of the brightest and most talented of the new writers on the block is braving the shave For Macmillan Cancer Support. I've pledged to her sponsored shave, and I really think you should to. My dad died from liver cancer and the Macmillan Cancer Support network was a great help, not just to my dad in his final days but also to myself and my family. This is a charity that means a great deal to me. So please consider sponsoring Laura.
Here is what Laura has to say on why she is doing this
"I work as a healthcare assistant and have seen too many patients diagnosed with this horrible disease. It's a life-changing diagnosis - the treatment is gruelling, almost as bad as the disease itself, and although survival rates are improving in leaps and bounds it's not enough. And last year, I lost my grandad to cancer. It's difficult to watch patients suffer, let alone a loved one. Support is such an important thing, for the patient and for their family & friends, and Macmillan do a brilliant job providing that support. According to the main Macmillan page, £200 will pay for an entire day's worth of support, which is why I'm making that my target."
