“Many people approach me telling me how they have benefited from the money raised by the MDA, and it’s always lovely to hear that we have achieved what we set out to do. I have said many times that, while my name is above the door, this isn’t my charity – it belongs to everybody who has supported us over the years.”
The Marina Dalglish Appeal was set-up by the Dalglish family in 2005 ‘to do something to help’ after Marina was successfully treated for Breast Cancer in 2003.
“Their support means that we can realise a much- cherished dream of providing an amazing new scanning facility”
Mr Paul May, Clinical Director at The Walton Centre
“Without this I definitely would struggle and I love coming here, love coming to stay all day and sometimes I don’t want to go home; this place had been my lifeline, I love it”
Larks Patient, 2020
The Marina Dalglish Appeal has been phenomenally successful over the last decade, but our desire to do more, and the need for even better services, is not diminished!
Make an amazing difference to those going through tough times with cancer
In 2016, we opened our breast cancer support centre, Larks by The Marina Dalglish Appeal in the heart of Liverpool.
The psychological difference Larks is making to women with cancer and their families is overwhelming. The bond between our Larkettes and the caring atmosphere they have created has surpassed our wildest expectations.
Donna Murray, Clinical Nurse Specialist at University Hospital Aintree : “Larks meets, or should I say often exceeds, patients’ needs; enhancing their recovery while providing a safe haven for peer support.”
Liz Stephens, Larkette : “Larks means everything; it lets you learn how to live with cancer.”
Iris Grimster, Larkette : “I cannot thank Marina and Lauren enough for making me feel like a woman again.”
“I’d like to say thank you to every single person who has donated his or her time, money, and expertise to The Marina Dalglish Appeal. I cannot over emphasise how much we value and appreciate everyone’s support; quite simply without it the charity would not be where it is today.”
