Brave Ly­dia shares her jour­ney

Rutherglen Reformer - - FESTIVAL -

Ruther­glen Ro­tary heard from a very brave speaker re­cently.

They were vis­ited by Kirsty Nimmo, a fundraiser for Can­cer Sup­port Scot­land, and Ly­dia Jack, who is bravely bat­tling the dis­ease.

Ly­dia spoke of her dif­fi­cult and chal­leng­ing ex­pe­ri­ences as a can­cer suf­ferer and the tremen­dous work that Can­cer Sup­port Scot­land do in help­ing her through.

Kirsty de­scribed what Can­cer Sup­port Scot­land pro­vides in terms emo­tional and prac­ti­cal sup­port on a one to one ba­sis.

The Ro­tary Club’s Andy Cat­tanach said: “Club mem­bers were tremen­dously im­pressed by Ly­dia and Pres­i­dent Ian Wil­son ex­pressed their ap­pre­ci­a­tion and thanks to both her and to Kirsty for en­light­en­ing them on the great work that the char­ity does for can­cer suf­fer­ers and those who care for them.”
