Elaine Taylor-Walker, 46, whose 46 year old husband is currently undergoing treatment for bowel cancer, has said the Nightingale has been like a family to her. She said, “I am doing the Pyjama Walk because for me it’s a chance to say thank-you and give something back for all they have done for me and my family.“ She added, “ We all know someone who has been affected by cancer but we never think it will happen directly to us or our family so I want to encourage people to take part in the pyjama walk and raise funds for this fantastic charity.”
