My Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page! This January I’m taking on Dryathlon and raising money for Cancer Research UK by ditching the drink for one month and fundraising for life-saving research. Most of you know I lost my mum in 2016 to leiomyosarcoma, a very rare cancer with a high mortality rate. Only about 3,300 new cases are diagnosed each year in the UK. Unfortunately my mum was part of this statistic. She fought so bravely with everything she had but in the end she lost. Whenever I can I try to raise money in the hope that one day we will find a cure. It's cancer's turn to lose.
