As I wrote my Christmas message earlier in the week, I started thinking about the new year and what 2019 will bring us as a Council.
Of course, its impossible to know what’s around the corner for us either as an organisation or as an individual.
I’ve been reminded of that several times this year, by a range of colleagues within ACC, who have experienced the shock of a cancer diagnosis. Conversations with these colleagues leave you feeling incredibly in awe of their strength, bravery, resilience and optimism.
All of course stress the importance of the screening services and facilities that we all have access to – both men and women, young and old.
So as I start to think about my New Year resolution, I’m definitely going to make a personal commitment to continue to access these screening services and I encourage you to do the same.
Let’s hope our colleagues continue to have the courage and bravery to cope with their treatment and as their “work family” lets give them all a commitment to be there for them when they need us most.
