I’m taking part in Shine Night Walk to help beat cancer

In memory of

Paru Weston (nee Dudhia)

This year I have decided to participate in the Shine Night Walk on 21st September in memory of my very dear friend Paru who sadly passed away at age 39. Although she was given 5 years she passed within weeks of her bowel cancer diagnosis. She was at stage 4 when the diagnosis was made and due to other health issues in hospital was unable to have treatment. Paru was a great friend who I met through work and we became and remained close friends. Our holiday away together 2 years ago was full of laughter with one bus trip resulting in us ending up miles past our stop due to us chatting and giggling away for too long. Paru also was a very generous girl supporting charities such as the Paul Walker foundation Reach Out Worldwide and the Dogs Trust to whom she gave regular donations. The list could go on for what a wonderful person she was. For this reason I would like to raise funds to help others and also to raise awareness as bowel cancer screening is currently only available for those over 55 yet there is a rise of this in people far younger. Paru lived with Crohns disease so the symptoms were similar. If you would like to support by way of donation please do so, every penny helps. She was definitely one in a million as a friend so now for me it's time to get training and get these feet moving :-)

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.

Cause

Bowel cancer

Over the past 40 years there's been dramatic progress in tackling bowel cancer and half of people diagnosed will now survive for at least 10 years. But with bowel cancer still claiming around 43 lives each day, more research still needs to be done. Help Cancer Research UK find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease.
