Donating with JustGiving is fast, simple and safe. Once you have donated the money will go directly to Cancer Research UK.
My goal is £200!!!!
I am taking part in the Race for Life, Chester 5K on July 8th because I would like to raise money and awareness of a specific type of cancer so many women overlook, ovarian cancer.
Ovarian cancer can often be mistaken for IBS as it mimics the symptoms caused by the syndrome, and it is often diagnosed at a late stage. Around 4,100 women each year loose their lives due to misdiagnosis of something less serious and the cancer being caught too late.
My mother was first diagnosed with Ovarian cancer back in February 2017 and it quickly escalated and became much more than what we thought. I want to raise awareness of this, so that doctors can refer women with IBS to be scanned sooner rather than later like my mother.
This is a cause that is so so important to me and my family and I’m sure also to those who knew my mother, so let’s raise £200 and pray that a final cure is found one day ❤️
