Chris Pointon, United Kingdom

Co-founder & Global Campaign Ambassador, #hellomynameis

Chris is one half of the awesome duo that is ‘Chris & Kate’. Their lives were turned upside down around 7 years ago when Kate was diagnosed with terminal cancer whilst they were holidaying in California. 

Since that point they concertinaed their lives into a shorter period and crammed a huge amount into Kate’s time on this planet. Along the way they have risen over £360,000 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. Kate’s legacy is huge and her name will live on forever through her legacy and various awards named in her honour.

Kate and Chris were fortunate enough to know what was coming and to be able to make plans accordingly for both Kate and for Chris post Kate’s death. Chris is now on a 12 month sabbatical from his career and actively talks at conferences around the world to ensure the campaign continues for many generations to come.
