I was a very close friend of Paul Popham since childhood, and have known his family well over the years. For this reason I have been part of the PPF charity since its conception and I am pleased to see it go from strength to strength.
I joined Paul Popham Fund about 2 years ago as a Befriender (Peer Mentor). I feel the role is not only to provide patients with helpful information, but to be emphatic to their needs, along with a friendly caring voice on the other end of the phone. Someone to listen to patients concerns and worries, at what is, a life changing time. Often at end stage renal failure, there is so much to absorb and decisions to be made, one can feel overwhelmed. With PPF we are with you every step of the way and hopefully can make your journey a little easier. I am proud to be part of the team.
My aim in life is to travel and pre-Covid I would regularly travel around the world.
I joined PPF in 2020. I hope to use my experience of kidney disease and diabetes to support other patients to live a good quality of life.
