Why I’m supporting Small Change, BIG Impact: Jayne Archer

I have supported Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, Beating Blood Cancer since I became a widow in 2010.

On 19 March 2010 I lost my beautiful husband suddenly. Mark was only ill for 40 days before mantle cell lymphoma (a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma) took him from me, aged just 49. To this day there is no cure for mantle cell and other blood cancers.

In March 2010, I fell off the merry-go-round of life and lost my best of everything. My world was silent and my heart shattered.

Raising awareness and funds, with an element of fun, is what I am inspired and driven to do. It helps me make sense of what has happened, move forward with my life and give my beautiful Mark a lasting legacy as a tribute to him.

I now have a couple of missions in life; to be healthy, happy and one day in my lifetime, for everyone to become a survivor.

“Small Change, BIG Impact”  is very important to get involved with and take part. This is a national event, where we can ALL come together and REALLY make a difference.

Your kindness in becoming a volunteer for an hour, a couple of hours, half a day or maybe longer and a stranger putting one or two spare coins in the buckets, really will help to save someone’s life.

It’s as simple as that and the best bit is, it will give everyone involved a good feeling that today YOU have made a difference.

With your help “Small Change, BIG Impact” will be recognised as an annual event across our lovely country and this will makes a difference.
