My name is Hallie.
I want to raise money in aid of cancer research because I want to help in the fight against cancer! I feel so strongly about this subject because my gran died of cancer when I was 6 and I remember how devastating it was for my whole family. she had cancer in her throat. I remember her voice changing because of the treatment she had to have. I remember her losing her hair and wearing a wig. I remember how hard it was for my grandad because she was his wife and he loved her so much. I remember the times that we couldn't see her because she was having treatment and we were poorly. I know how hard it can be for families going through what we went through. The journey is hard if people survive and if they don't. I want to do my bit to help so that the journey is easier, so that people don't have to grieve for lost family members and so that one day no-one needs to die from this horrible illness.
Over the next few months i will be doing the following things to raise money:
- I have 33cm off my hair which I have donated to make wigs for people that have lost their hair because of treatment this was done 24/08/20-26/08/20
- bake sales
- a 5K run
I will post pictures or everything I do to raise money for cancer research UK!
