The fight against cancer goes on! There is no-one I know who can say that THEY DO NOT have a friend or relative who has been affected or has battled this horrendous disease. Over the last few years I am one of the many, many people who can say they've had the most dreaded news that a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer. In that moment life can feel surreal, I can never comprehend the impact of this news has on my loved one themselves! I speak only from my own experience here. But for each time that I have experienced this I have been blown away by how much strength, hope and kick-ass attitude I see and feel. You've all been an inspiration to me. So...on Sunday 2nd October 2022 I will be running the Great Scottish Run half marathon for Cancer Research UK to join the battle against this disease - my first ever half marathon attempt! I am dedicating my run (and my blood, sweat and tears) to ALL those amazing people I know and love so much who have cancer right now, those who have battled and won the fight and for all of those who have lost their battle. This is also one way that I feel I can to show how much you all mean to me and how inspiring you all are. LET'S DO THIS!!!! My goal is to raise £500 for Cancer Research UK which will help go towards life-saving research. Thank you all in advance for your support and generosity! It will definitely get me over that finish line!!! Feel free to follow my prep and the big run itself via Strava!
In 2024 Citi have chosen to raise funds for the EPIC Dive project, helping researchers find new ways to detect pancreatic cancer earlier. In England, just 8% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive their disease for 5 years or more. Often, this is because it’s diagnosed too late, when the cancer has already spread and treatment options are limited. The EPIC DIVE team aims to find new ways to capture and amplify chemical signals given off by pancreatic cancer into the blood. If successful, this research could lead to new tests that help diagnose cancer at an early stage, when the chances of successful treatment are highest, saving lives.
