My daughter’s dream to make a difference
In memory of
After already completing this mammoth challenge 3 times I never had any intention of putting myself through it again. But Libby’s sheer determination and dedication to keep her promise to my Gran has actually made it my mission to go out there, be her wingman and help through the tough night she has ahead of her. If you can, please support her xxx Here’s her story... Two and a half years ago my Great Grannie died only 22 days after being told she had very advanced pancreatic cancer. The morning after she died I promised that I would do the Shine Marathon for her. She was so proud of my Mum when she did it for my Great Grandad and I wanted to do the same. At long last I am finally old enough to take on this tough challenge! I am hoping the money I raise will help raise awareness of this silent killer and help find a cure so no one has to suffer the agonising and traumatic pain that my Great Grannie had to go through. I said goodbye to my Grannie a week before she died and she was too weak to even talk to me properly. Seeing my Mum, Nannie and everyone else so heartbroken is something I don’t want anyone else to have to go through. So together with my Mum as my wingman I am going to walk into the night and do my very best to keep my promise to my Grannie and to make a difference. If you are in a position to donate even a pound I would be so grateful for your support. Thank you so much for reading my story. Libby xxx
Survival rates for pancreatic cancer remain stubbornly low in the UK, often because the disease is diagnosed late and is difficult to treat. Help Cancer Research UK make progress in one of the biggest research challenges its scientists are facing – to find better ways to detect and treat the disease.
