I'm fundraising for Cancer Research UK to beat breast cancer sooner

As you might be aware, I've been diagnosed with breast cancer at 23 (yes very unlucky!). But I'm very much not alone- 1 in 8 women get breast cancer in the UK, I've been told. And about half of us get cancer at some point!
I'm starting my treatment journey and I can only be positive because of amazing research that's gone into cancer that's giving me such a positive outlook for the future. I've had so many treatment options available to me and that will form part of my future and I can only be grateful that this research is already underway.
So yes, I am preemptively shaving my hair pre-chemo (which might seem a bit of a cop out but I am rejecting cold cap usage which could totally have possibly spared my hair!), but please consider donating to help us all beat cancer sooner and continue making such amazing progress in this space!

Breast cancer

With almost 140 women diagnosed every day, breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. And, although rarer, around 350 men are also diagnosed with breast cancer every year. The good news is more than two-thirds of women now survive 20 years or more. Help Cancer Research UK find new ways to diagnose and treat the disease.
