History in the making!

This is history in the making, my first ever blog!  I have to confess I don’t have a facebook page, I don’t do Twitter, Flickr, or anything like that.  I’m actually quite a private person bur realise the importance of this.   Not to promote me but to raise money for my nominated charity Teenage Cancer Trust.



William takes Bluestone’s adventures to the South Pole

Posted on  by Bluestone Blog  

Guests are always telling us how much they enjoy the free range of fun and adventurous activities available here at Bluestone National Park Resort and the Blue Lagoon water park.

So it was no surprise when Bluestone’s founder and CEO, William McNamara, wanted to take that to a new level…. heading off on a trek to the South Pole with plans to raise £100,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust in the process. Oh, and he’ll be trekking the last 100kms unsupported.

At Teenage Cancer Trust, we understand
that young people with cancer require
specialist care.

We know how damaging it is to take a young person away from their everyday life, their friends, their environment, their family – and put them in a cancer ward with small children or older people.

Young people have a much better chance in their fight against cancer if they are treated by teenage cancer experts, in an environment tailored to their needs. So we’re working every day to make that happen.

Building specialist units

We don’t believe that teenagers should have to stop being teenagers, just because they have cancer. So we fund and build specialist units for young people in NHS hospitals. Our units bring teenagers with cancer together with loads of new friends of their own age so they can support each other.
Alongside all of this is a medical team of teenage cancer specialists who pool knowledge to create a body of expertise that’s second to none. They’re backed up by our Nurse Consultants who provide clinical care, develop research, deliver professional education and ensure that standards remain as high as possible.

Teenage Cancer Trust units aren’t like ordinary cancer wards. Everything about them has been designed to give teenagers the very best chance of a positive outcome. We want every young person with cancer in this country to have that chance.

Our aim

Teenage Cancer Trust aims to ensure that every young person with cancer and their family receive the best possible care and professional support throughout their cancer journey.
