I'm walking at Shine Night Walk to help beat cancer

In memory of

My mum

Each year Cancer Research UK’s scientists get closer to beating cancer, and they’ve helped double survival rates in the last 40 years. But we can’t stop there.

Only with our continued support can they turn this research into breakthroughs that save millions of lives. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.

As most of you know I lost mum to Ovarian Cancer five years ago, this is one of the most aggressive forms of cancer and unfortunately doesn't have the greatest treatment success rate, as we know only to our despair. That's why with Dawn, I'm taking part in this years Shine Walk in Birmingham to raise money for cancer research (with my contribution going directly to Ovarian Cancer research) so that hopefully no more families will loose their mothers/sister/wife to this awful disease.

Any donation would be really really welcome

Ovarian cancer

Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cancer in UK women, with more than 130 women every week told that they have the disease. It is often not diagnosed until it has spread, making it harder to treat. Help Cancer Research UK find new ways to detect ovarian cancer earlier and find better treatments.
