Thank you for visiting my Cancer Research UK Veg Pledge page. This November, I will be going vegan for Cancer Research UK. The money I raise will help fund life-saving research to help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
November 2017 my families life was turned upside down when my Mama my absolute world was diagnosed not only with a rare form of stomach cancer (duodenal cancer) but was also told it was terminal. In January 2018 we were distraught when after a 49 battle peacefully passed away.
Currently in the UK there is little research in stomach cancer so much so a lot of the time when diagnosed with stomach cancer you are normally told in the next breathe it’s terminal, unlike it’s counter forms such a breast, bowel and prostate, stomach cancer not only is under researched is also under advertised meaning a lot of people don’t even know the symptoms to get checked out.
So, picking a challenge related to the digestive system seems fitting for the type of cancer I want more research in!
