I was at a “Meet Macmillan” conference a few days ago. Our family has a lot to thank Macmillan for. It was a Macmillan nurse who made it possible for our son, Neil, to die in his own home, and that is why my wife, Dorothy, and I (right) are fund-raisers for Macmillan. Not in any sense to "pay back" what they did for Neil and for us. That’s impossible.
