Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.
During October 2018, one of my closest friends Hannah was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer called ovarian germ cell cancer. Since her diagnosis she has had to have one of her ovaries removed and is now undergoing 3 lots of 21 day cycles of chemotherapy. Much like her and many others I was not aware that this rare form of cancer existed and have found out after her being diagnosed that it is the female equivalent of testicular cancer in men. To help raise awareness of this to more people and for others going through what she is, I have decided to shave all of my hair off and raise money to go towards cancer research. For those of you who know me personally will know that my hair is a big part of my character and personality and I can't imagine having to lose it through no choice of my own, therefore, I am doing this so Hannah doesn't have to do it alone. Any donation would be really appreciated no matter how big or small. #thisisbeatingcancer #positiviTEA

Ovarian cancer

Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cancer in UK women, with more than 130 women every week told that they have the disease. It is often not diagnosed until it has spread, making it harder to treat. Help Cancer Research UK find new ways to detect ovarian cancer earlier and find better treatments.
