John and I received support on numerous occasions from the Action Kidney Cancer, during John’s illness. I want to help people in a similar situation to access support from the charity, such as their helpline and in particular,  the Patient Support Forum. The forum offers patients and carers a platform where they can share their health experiences, find information about their conditions, and connect with other patients who are going through similar challenges.

I have organised the memorial concert for John on the 23rd March at St Michael’s church Elmwood Road in Chiswick.

The concert is to honour the memory of John and to celebrate his life. John inspired many of us with his courage in overcoming adversity in his fight against cancer.

John loved to play and listen to music and the choice of music selected for the concert will reflect this. Please join us at the concert, all welcome.
