The Myeloma UK ‘A Life Worth Living’ Garden highlighted the work of Myeloma UK, which in 2023 celebrates its 25th anniversary. After consultation with Myeloma UK’s patient care specialists, Chris conceived a metaphorical design, based on the role a jewel garden plays in emboldening the emotions and spirit of someone with myeloma. Chris created a calm, immersive, exquisitely detailed and unapologetically beautiful, verdant garden, which deliberately encouraged the eye to linger, the mind to pause and a deepening connectivity with a soothing oasis for emotional wellbeing.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Myeloma UK is the only organisation in the UK dealing exclusively with the blood cancer myeloma. Its ultimate goal is to find a cure.
Myeloma UK is dedicated to myeloma patients – making sure they get access to the right treatment at the right time; continually striving to improve standards of treatment and care through research, education and raising awareness of myeloma.
The garden has been repurposed to benefit several sites following its debut at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2023. The trees, hedging and landscaping materials have been delivered to The Hurlet Crematorium in East Renfrewshire. They will become part of the memorial gardens, which are open to the local community, and are a place for people to reflect and celebrate their loved ones. One tree will go to The Beatson Cancer Centre in Glasgow. The Beatson Hospital has achieved Myeloma UK’s CSEP award in recognition of dedicated care for people with myeloma. The rest of the plants were sold to raise funds for Myeloma UK.
