I've known Kate and Simon for many years. When Ben passed away Kate and Simon wanted to launch a charity in Ben’s name to help other children and support their families.
Over the past 10 years I've gained a lot of experience of charity work and wanted to help as much as possible. I'm very proud to be part of the charity because we have such a great team.
Having known Ben’s parents Kate and Simon since 1995, I was inspired by both Ben’s and their bravery to get involved with the charity.
I hope to help raise awareness of the charity by working with the Trustees on the charity’s website and communications to encourage families who need financial help to access new cancer treatments, to contact Ben’s Heroes Trust.
During Ben's battle with cancer in 2011, his courage and determination inspired me to run the Brighton Marathon to raise money for a national cancer charity.
When Kate and Simon announced that they wanted to establish a children’s cancer charity in Ben’s name, to recognise and help other young heroes battling cancer, I didn't hesitate to get involved.
