Chris co-founded the #hellomynameis campaign with his inspiring (late) wife Dr Kate Granger MBE. Chris and Kate’s lives were turned upside down over five years ago when Kate was diagnosed with terminal cancer whilst holidaying in California.
Thereafter they concertinaed our lives into a shorter period in order to cram a huge amount into Kate’s remaining time on this planet. Along the way, the couple rose over £300,000 for good causes, travelled the world, met many celebrities and royalty and started a global campaign that improves patient care through the basic message of introductions entitled #hellomynameis.
The #hellomynameis campaign is Kate’s legacy and various awards have been named in her honour. In addition to his pledge to spend time ensuring Kate’s memory lives on and change continues across the globe, Chris is a senior supply chain manager in a global retailer.
