When Giovanna Marchioli’s Nana, Sylvia, was diagnosed with cancer for the second time, Tynedale Hospice at Home provided nursing care to her in her home in her final weeks. Now Giovanna, along with her mam and sister are taking on this year’s Great North Run in her memory, hoping to raise an incredible £1,000 for the Hospice.
Giovanna said: “Tynedale Hospice at Home were absolutely brilliant throughout the whole time my Nana was ill. Their care and professionalism was outstanding and we felt so, so supported by them. Nana trusted them and they treated her with such care and dignity. It will mean so much knowing that we’ll be running in her memory and she’ll be in my thoughts every step of the way. We want to give something back to the Hospice who gave so much to our family at a time when we needed it most. Every step we take will be worth it.”
