The difference your support makes…
We hope the fundraising story of James’ uncle, Dan McHugh, will inspire you in your Firewalk challenge and on the fundraising trail too.
In 2019, following diagnosis for a terminal brain tumour, Dan’s nephew, James McHugh, spent 11 weeks at Coventry Myton Hospice. During his brave fight, James received ‘fantastic care, love and support’ from the Myton staff for whom ‘nothing was too much’.
It was this amazing support received by James and his family that inspired 59-year-old Dan to hit the fundraising trail – in James’s memory and to say thank you.
During his stay at Myton, James’s condition improved enough for the Myton team and his family to arrange a surprise 30th birthday party for him at the hospice, surrounded by his family and friends.
Following a long battle with a brain tumour, James died in July 2019, aged just 30.
Dan had planned to fundraise along with James’s dad, Con, to self-fund the Inca Trail challenge that Myton had organised. Unfortunately, Covid put paid to these plans for the year so he decided to come up with his own challenge to make sure Myton didn’t lose out at a time it so desperately needed financial support.
Coincidentally, the company that Dan works for in Warwick (Accenture), had chosen Myton for its charity that year so he had great support from his work colleagues also.
I was really looking forward to the Inca Trail – it was the perfect thing for James’s dad and I to do, in memory of James and as a thank you to the amazing team at Myton who made such a difference to him and to all of the family
