I am honoured to have been asked to be a trustee for CCLG. Having been a patient myself when younger and after getting to know Dr Mark Gaze I am delighted to be able to try and help this fantastic charity. Hopefully both my experiences as a patient and also my experience from my current work in finance will allow me to provide valuable help with the challenges that CCLG faces and helping to grow that charity to help as many people as we can.
In 2010, Gayle lost her son Lewis to neuroblastoma. After Lewis’ death, Gayle and her family became aware of gaps in services for bereaved families. Gayle established ‘A Child of Mine’, a newly registered charity supporting bereaved parents. Gayle is also a long standing supporter of CCLG, having been an active member of the CCLG Contact Editorial Board since 2011.
I feel extremely proud to have been asked to become a trustee for CCLG. Through my own experience of having been a parent of a child with cancer, and now running my own charity, I hope to bring a balance of capabilities that will support and further the objectives of CCLG

Rachel is a qualified accountant who has worked in charities for the last nine years.
My current job, with UCLH Charity, brought me into contact with Dr Mark Gaze, with whom I have worked on projects to raise money for the charity and for children's cancer research within UCL Hospitals. It is this link which has given me an appreciation of the very different challenges which are posed in treating children with cancer, as opposed to adults, and so I was glad of the opportunity to support the work of CCLG.
