Someone very special to me is fighting cancer at the moment. I can't express in words how much they mean to me and the support that they have received from the NHS and charities such as Cancer Research UK has made a huge difference. So much progress has been made in the oncology field but it is very expensive and this charity receives no funding from the UK government.
My aim is to raise as much money as I can throughout June doing the Walk Over Cancer challenge and am grateful for any money that people donate. This challenge will involve me walking over 10,000 steps a day for the month of June.
Half of us will get cancer at some point in our lives and supporting cancer research means that scientists can continue to work on cures for the future and make cancer an illness of the past. Cancer however common/rare, early stage/terminal is something which nobody should have to go through. Just one diagnosis affects the patient, their friends, families, colleagues and so many other people - and there is a new cancer diagnosis every two minutes in the UK alone. Thank you for your support <3
