As part of our Community matters series we visit Suzanne from Al’s Pals In Milton Keynes.
Al’s Pals is a service offered to all cancer patients in Milton Keynes. Al’s Pals is named after Alan Dumbell who received cancer treatment at Milton Keynes University Hospital (MKUH) Alan noticed that throughout his treatment, although he was surrounded by his loving family, he still felt very lonely and lost at times, and he often discussed having a ‘buddy’ to support and help him where he felt things were missing.
It is his legacy to have a cancer buddy scheme like this and with the passion of his daughter and the support of Macmillan Cancer Support and MKUH, Al’s Pals was born.
