I'm walking at Shine Night Walk to raise hope

In memory of


What most people don't know, unless they are unfortunate enough to have a loved one affected by this terrible disease, is in this modern day and age, with amazing progress having been made on so many types of cancer, the prognosis for some types of brain cancer has not evolved in decades. I lost my mum few years back to a primary brain cancer called Glioblastoma or know as GBM for the people that had crossed the path of this terrible cancer. And even today with so many advances in treatment and research, a diagnosis of GBM is a death sentence. From the day of the diagnosis, it's a lost, very short lived battle. Today, I want to raise money for it. I don't have the hope to raise near enough money on my own to sponsor the needed progress. But I have that hope that in my lifetime, with the help of everyone, there will be a cure found to get those people affected a fair chance to fight against what is today a lost battle. To give their loved ones hope that there is an alternative when diagnosed. Even if it's only few extra years or even months, that the prognosis evolves to something more positive. Today, there is no hope for the ones close to the ones affected by this terrible disease, I'm vouching that together, we can create more hope towards having a final cure.
So yet again, I have set myself for a challenge that I'm absolutely not ready for, but I'm surrounded by a fantastic dream team. But this one has a very special meaning to me and I'm doing it for my life hero, my mum. And it would mean a huge amount to me if you could help me on this journey. How? Raising money to raise hope that in the end, Brain tumours will be a thing of the past. Raising hope that we will keep our own affected life heroes just a bit longer in our lives.

Thank you for your generosity!
