2022 Thames Bridge Trek
I will be taking part in the Thames Bridge Trek on 10 September 2022, walking 25km to raise money for Cancer Research UK. This is a charity close to my heart, after my sister was diagnosed with trachea cancer in 2020. After having a 1/3 of her trachea removed and during the operation the Surgeon finding out that only one of her lungs was working, Lisa was given the all clear last year.
In 2024 Citi have chosen to raise funds for the EPIC Dive project, helping researchers find new ways to detect pancreatic cancer earlier. In England, just 8% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive their disease for 5 years or more. Often, this is because it’s diagnosed too late, when the cancer has already spread and treatment options are limited. The EPIC DIVE team aims to find new ways to capture and amplify chemical signals given off by pancreatic cancer into the blood. If successful, this research could lead to new tests that help diagnose cancer at an early stage, when the chances of successful treatment are highest, saving lives.
