‘Through Adversity comes Legacy’ - The #hellomynameis story…

Chris Pointon is the husband of the late Dr Kate Granger MBE who was a doctor and patient. Chris’s wife died last year aged just 34 after 5 years living with a terminal cancer diagnosis. Throughout that time they both raised over £250,000 for charity (now at £325,000) and changed global healthcare through a simple campaign they started in 2013 entitled #hellomynameis. Following Kate’s death Chris continues to promote the campaign through talking at various conferences across the globe and worldwide awareness on social media. Chris is currently on a 12 month sabbatical travelling the world raising awareness of the campaign and promoting compassionate care in healthcare and beyond.
