My Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. I’m going to breaststroke & backstroke my way to AT LEAST 20km during August to help raise money for Cancer Research UK. I was given a relatively new chemotherapy regime in 2021 when I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, following lots of research & recent associated positive results. Although my treatment course was classified as “aggressive”, it did the job beautifully & I’m now cancer-free. I will be eternally grateful to everyone who has made me a cancer survivor! Please put a smile on my face & show your support to help fund more life-saving research by donating to my page.
