My name is Alana Hall and I live in Baildon with my husband Chris, our two sons Dylan who is 5 years old and Conor aged 2 years. I have known Rachel since we started secondary school at 11 years old and we’ve been really good friends for over 20 years. Rachel is, and always will be the most amazing friend and she is a truly lovely lady.
Finding out about Rachel’s diagnosis crushed me and devastated Chris – he’s known Rachel since she introduced us when I was 15. We were both completely horrified that this was happening to her and stunned that there was very little that the NHS were prepared to do. When Rachel asked me to be involved with Love Hope Trust as a trustee, I was really pleased that I could try and do something worthwhile to help.
