Sally Read

The Sally Read Tribute fund

  • How would you describe them?

    "Sally Read fought an amazing sixteen and a half year battle against Cancer and towards the end of her battle, was greatly supported by Macmillan"

    From Gemma Makin

  • What did they love most?

    "Often found crocheting or knitting, crafting in various forms which she then used to raise funds for the Woolverstone Wish which is now fully accessed"

    From Gemma Makin

Sally understood how much that Macmillan and her nurses gave her over time. She was able to raise funds towards the unit's completion but lost her nurses towards the end due to a "lack of funding" so even if we can help others not to be alone throughout their cancer battle, we feel it will be exactly what she would have wanted.

Woolverstone Wish, Ipswich Hospital Oncology Unit and particularly Mum's Macmillan nurse, (Catharina) Ina Malan were vital as sources of information, support and care throughout - A Macmillan nurse costs £191 per day.
