I’m walking 10,000 steps this March for Cancer Research UK, please support me.

In memory of

Kim

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This March I’m walking 10,000 steps a day throughout the month to help beat cancer sooner. Help me Walk All Over Cancer and fund life-saving research by sponsoring me.

Wind back two years ago, our sister was loving life. She had a great job, had her own apartment and was surrounded with fantastic friends and family. She noticed her stomach was starting to bloat regularly and needing the toilet more frequently, but she thought nothing of it. This went on for a period of time and she finally booked an appointment to see her GP. Things moved swiftly from this point. After various tests and surgery, doctors diagnosed her with Ovarian cancer.

Following surgery and chemotherapy, we were all hopeful that the cancer was gone. Our sister started going to the gym and she returned to work. She was full of energy. We had our sister back. Then we were hit with the devastating news that her cancer had returned. This time, it was more aggressive. It had spread to surrounding organs.

Our sister soldiered through major surgery, removing a ridiculous amount of diseased tissues. The chemotherapy that followed was more intense than the previous time. You could tell she was more tired, she lost her appetite and bruising would appear around her body. What amazed us the most about our sister was that she never complained. Ever. She was still the same sister we love. Her silliness with our children, her playfulness and her strength to leave the house to meet her friends, even when it hurt. This is the type of person our sister is, never to cause a fuss, thoughtful, considerate and caring.

Later towards last year, the dreaded words we did not expect or want to hear...happened. Terminal. But that has not stopped our sister from seeing her friends, playing with her nieces and nephews, and it certainly has not stopped her internet shopping addiction!

Sadly our sister died from cancer early this February, she was at home and surrounded by family who loved her dearly. It breaks our heart that she is no longer with us, but her memories live on in all of those who knew and loved her in life. She died a fighter and never gave up.
