So thankful that we have the NHS in the UK, long may it continue, (don’t want to hear a Brexit lecture folks) but in reality the majority of us pay very little money to have health care in the UK, and some of us don’t realise how little we do contribute until we need life saving treatments, from the moan’s about waiting times through to the many other grievances people have towards the NHS, but imagine living in a country where you have to pay for your own treatments, the majority of us couldn’t afford to. On our travels around the world we meet so many people that can’t afford these life saving treatments, they have no chance of survival, we recently met a lady that has bone cancer, she needed $25,000 USD for treatments, the average wage in her county was $200 USD per month, so she will die, this is so sad to see, and that’s why we are so proud and honoured to be raising awareness and funding for the UK’s only Breast Cancer Prevention Charity “Prevent Breast Cancer” You may ask why? well medical research charities are vital, as without them we wouldn’t have prevention, vaccines, cures and so on, the list is endless.
Don’t just think.. “oh not another charity that wants money”..
Research is on the front line, so be grateful of the NHS and the country you live in.
