Around ten years ago Sue Mosey's husband Graham was diagnosed with cancer and like many families before and she felt as though the bottom has dropped out their world.
Graham has been one of the very lucky ones and is still in remission, at times it is like living with a sword over your head but one thing it does do is make you focus on the here and now and put a lot of life’s trivia into perspective.
Graham’s success was due to his amazingly positive outlook and his consultant, who was and still is a great support. He gave the couple all the facts and figures with honesty and put Graham onto a, what was then, new drug regime. It worked and they are very thankful, and are still a family unit. Sadly, close friends have not been so lucky
Sue has made it a personal mission to raise as much money as she can to help research into finding cures for the disease that touches and takes so many lives. Sue became the co-organiser of the Heathfield and Horam Group of Friends for Cancer Research UK, back in 2004, which raises a few thousand pounds each year. The idea for this event came in October 2005, at a friends 60th birthday party get together in a local pub. The chap who had sourced the band for the event casually threw in the comment "Wouldn’t it be great to organise a sort of Band Aid for Cancer Research UK." That was it. The following week the ball was set in motion……….the rest as they say is ‘history’.
So, why not come and join in, have a great afternoon and/or evening of amazing music in lovely surroundings and best of all, you will be contributing to helping someone to lead a longer healthier life.
Cancer Research UK is the world’s largest independent organisation dedicated to cancer research, funding over 3000 scientists, doctors and nurses based in 80 academic centres in 30 cities throughout the UK. The charity funds research through grants to scientists in universities, hospitals and independent institutes, and by supporting work in its own research institutes and units. The charities research budget for the year 2005/2006 is £248million.
The mission of the charity is to control the disease of cancer in all its known forms within the next two generations. Progress is being made and today almost everyone with cancer has a much better chance of surviving with the improved treatments today than ever were available 50 years ago. Almost all men with testicular cancer are 95% curable, children suffering from childhood leukaemia are over 80% curable, almost all children’s cancers are 70% curable, 22% more women are surviving breast cancer than ten years ago and over 100,000 people are cured of cancer every year.
Cancer Research are almost entirely dependent upon legacies and voluntary donations to support their scientific programme so without people like Sue Mosey and her Horam and Heathfield friends, organising this great Rock event and the generosity of the Bands and their sponsors helping to make it all happen, the foundation would not be able to offer such real hope for cures for both today and for the future. Cancer Research UK is extremely grateful for all their magnificent fundraising efforts and wishes the event every success.
