My best friend, my mum Mandy xx
In memory of
4th May 1961 - 6th Oct 2014
Those that know me will be shocked to see that I have signed up for this, I am probably one of the laziest people ever! I wanted to take on this challenge to get myself motivated to actually exercise and take myself out of my comfort zone. I want to be able to raise funds to support Pancreatic Cancer, as it only receives less than 2% of the funding towards its research. I lost my mum Mandy to this horrible disease and I'm doing this in her memory (she would be more shocked than anyone to see my take this on!). Each year Cancer Research UK’s scientists get closer to beating cancer, and they’ve helped double survival rates in the last 40 years. But we can’t stop there. Only with our continued support can they turn this research into breakthroughs that save millions of lives. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now. Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Cancer Research UK.
Survival rates for pancreatic cancer remain stubbornly low in the UK, often because the disease is diagnosed late and is difficult to treat. Help Cancer Research UK make progress in one of the biggest research challenges its scientists are facing – to find better ways to detect and treat the disease.
With Cancer Research UK Giving Pages more of the money raised goes towards beating cancer. Aside from the credit and debit card fees, every penny donated goes to Cancer Research UK.
