Macmillan Cancer Support in Ballymena and throughout Northern Ireland has always had many people and organisations fundraising for them. For many, Macmillan Cancer Support professionals have become a great source of help and support for individuals and their families & friends dealing with this illness and as a result we regularly see people fundraising for them.

One such person is Ballymena man Trevor Magee. Trevor is in the middle of training for a cycle ride which will take him across Florida USA – from one side to the other – a distance of 170 miles – in one day! The event called Cross Florida Ride takes place on 3rd April 2016 with all donations he receives going to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Trevor said he knew he had to do something after a recent experience. He says, “Recently while sitting in the City Hospital with a friend waiting for some radiotherapy I was shocked as I counted around 30 people waiting to be called, with ages from as young as 10 years old to people in their 70’s. As I sat there the thought occurred to me that in reality this could be me waiting to be called as cancer has no respect for age.”
