Richard and Nikki were invited to appear in the Everything End of Life podcast. It talks about how they have transformed grief into hope and action for Young Cancer Patients.  Hear their compelling story of transforming grief into action, raising £1.7 million over a decade to support teenagers and young adults with cancer. Discover how they’ve funded critical research and created welcoming hospital spaces tailored for young patients.

Navigating the waters of loss is never straightforward, but through candid reflections and personal anecdotes, we explore how authenticity and supportive relationships can offer strength during the darkest times. Learn the importance of being real with your grief, discussing death with children, and planning personalized funeral arrangements that honour the unique spirit of a loved one. This segment underscores the power of community support and the healing that comes from open, honest conversations about death.

Fundraising for healthcare and social services presents its own set of hurdles, and this episode dives into the strategies and challenges of managing these financial strains. Discover the impact of skyrocketing demand for social workers and the unpredictable nature of funding. We also highlight the compassionate contributions of organizations such as funeral directors John J Smith and like Co-op Funeral Services, which provide free funerals for under-18s. This episode is a testament to resilience, community spirit, and the relentless pursuit of support for those in need and the unbridled altruism of Richard and Nikki Bowdidge
