Nick Turkentine and everyone at Kidney Cancer UK are deeply saddened at the news that Melinda Whale has lost her courageous fight with lung cancer. Our sincere condolences and thoughts are with James and his family at this difficult time.
Melinda played a huge part in the formation of the Kidney Cancer UK, originally setup as the James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer, following James’s diagnosis and the removal of a kidney in 2000. The work Melinda undertook on behalf of kidney cancer patients as a trustee from the start was selfless, giving and she was always there with an infectious, positive attitude and a happy smile.
We will miss Melinda deeply as a friend and Trustee.
Nick Turkentine – CEO, Kidney Cancer UK
