Sandra & Graham Freeman

A unique couple in more ways than one. Not only are Graham and Sandra Freeman a most friendly and caring couple with the best sense of humour, but they have a special story.

When Sandra was diagnosed with cancer in 2009, she was understandably devastated. Then she found out that she would need chemotherapy and was terrified at the prospect, as she knew it would mean a round trip of about 50 miles to receive her treatment in Cheltenham, and a very long wait when she arrived at the Oncology Centre.

Then Sandra found out that she could have her treatment on board our Gloucestershire Mobile Chemotherapy Unit ‘Helen’, which meant that the whole experience was less stressful. Her rock throughout treatment was her husband Graham. Unfortunately, Graham was later diagnosed with Colon Cancer, but having witnessed his wife having her treatments on board the Mobile Chemotherapy Unit, was aware of the positive affects it had on both the cancer patient and their carer.

Since then, Graham and Sandra have helped the Charity in many ways, including participating in one of our DVDs, taking part in interviews with media teams, giving a speech to VIPs at our Annual Charity Polo Day, and fundraising through Graham’s 70th Birthday, to name but a few.

Graham and Sandra received their Ambassador awards from Lord MacLaurin, during a ceremony held in October 2014.
