“In only months since the loss of Carol his wife, Jack has seen a simple idea to support the hospice in which Carol died grow into a national and international movement.  His passion to support this hospice has struck a raw nerve and resonated to develop a very touching and fitting memorial to someone so obviously special to him and his family.  Hospices provide an essential service and I wish Jack every success with this.”

Many people – too many – have been affected by the loss of a loved one to cancer, but not all of us have the courage to do something bold and courageous about it.  That is why I am lending my support to Jack’s campaign “Hair for Hospices” – which is a great example of an idea which has grown into a successful campaign, and give us all the chance to do something to help.  So please think of how you can contribute – by sponsoring someone or doing something to your hair.

“Raising awareness of and funding for hospices is an excellent thing to be doing – Hospices play such a critical role in assisting families at a very difficult time. Let’s hope that it does become the new Red Nose Day for Hospices”
