I have decided to get involved in ‘a bucked for change’ for world cancer day as it is very close to my heart. My amazing mum was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and has battled ever since, loosing her hair twice and have numerous operations and chemo therapy. Last year we were told the news that her breast cancer had spread to her bone and it was terminal. This really changed our view on life and made us realise life is too short to sit around and do nothing! I’m not asking for a miracle to raise millions, but every penny goes towards finding a cure 💗
Cancer is a growing global issue. Cancer Research UK works with the best scientists and partner organisations across the globe to beat cancer. So, this World Cancer Day I’m calling on everyone to raise money for Cancer Research UK’s vital work so we can save more lives in the UK and around the world.
“At this time of year, I’d usually be taking to my local high street with a bucket to raise money for Cancer Research UK in support of the World Cancer Day campaign. But we need to do things a little differently this year, which is why I’m collecting for A Bucket for Change to help raise money for life-saving research.
Every penny makes a huge difference to cancer research so please clear out your loose change and show your support with a donation to my page.
A donation of £10 could fund our Cancer Chat forum for half an hour which is a safe online space open to anyone to discuss any aspect of cancer.
On World Cancer Day, it’s time to unite and take action.”
