Sean Daly On 28th April, I will be running in the Stirling Marathon for Strathcarron Hospice.

Strathcarron Hospice provide specialist palliative care and expert end of life care for the people of Forth Valley, Cumbernauld and Kilsyth. They care for people with illnesses that cannot be cured including cancer, lung, heart or kidney failure and a range of non-malignant and neurological diseases.

They are also actively involved in research and education in palliative care, and promote and influence the delivery of palliative care locally and beyond.

I am participating in the Great Stirling Run in aid of Strathcarron Hospice because I believe that people should not only die well, but live well until the end of life.

My mum retired from nursing at Strathcarron Hospice earlier this year, after working there for the past 14 years.

This is also a tribute to my mum and her colleagues, for the outstanding care they provide. Sean Daly
