The Karen Henderson Legacy Fund has raised an

incredible £43,735.10 to date.

 

We are delighted to announce 2 initiatives that will benefit from the Karen Henderson Legacy Fund in 2022

Littlelift Boxes

These boxes are packed full of mood boosting practical products for secondary breast cancer patients going through chemotherapy. These will be re-branded to show they are from the KHLF and contain a couple of additional items "from Karen"

Karen was delighted when she received her Littlelifts box from Lisa & Make 2nds Count. The smile on Karen's face when she received the box said it all! Each item was so well thought out and packed full of love.

Birdsong Physio & Yoga

Make 2nds Count are partnering with Birdsong to offer up physio led yoga sessions for Secondary breast cancer patients. Both these activities have been proven to help patients with breathing, flexibility and pain management. Karen was a great advocate for and strongly believed in the benefit of keeping both fit and active whilst going through treatment.

A dedicated patient champion since the launch of Make 2nds Count in 2018, Karen firmly cemented her place in the Make 2nds Count family. As one of the patient models in our first photo shoot, the minute Karen walked in the door her positivity and zest for living her best life radiated throughout the studio. From that point onwards, Karen became one of our first patient champions and she made sure that she flew the flag for us anywhere and everywhere she went.

From campaigning at the Scottish Parliament, volunteering at roadshows, strutting her stuff on the runway (at any opportunity!) to hosting her ‘Big Ball’. And, of course, who could ever forget her very own fundraising music video ‘Sunshine on Dalkeith’. 

Raising in excess of £35,000 for us over the years, there was no stopping this pocket rocket!

Make 2nds Count gave Karen hope and a support network but she gave us even more blessings in allowing those involved in Make 2nds Count the opportunity to call Karen a dear friend.
