Our lives may have been put on hold at the moment, but cancer hasn't stopped.
Me and my pals are walking a marathon over 2 days to raise money for Cancer research UK (it was going to be the shine walk until COVID happened). My money raised is specifically going towards finding a cure, or at the very least a more effective treatment for brain tumours. My wonderful sister Wendy was diagnosed with an aggressive incurable brain tumour in Dec 2019 and she is currently doing an amazing job of living with it. So much great research has already been done and alot of great treatments for many cancers have been developed. However, Wendy's type of tumour, to date, has very, very limited treatment options. Wouldn't it be amazing if the money we raise went towards finding a cure or at the very least a treatment that gives people diagnosed with glioblastomas longer with their friends and families.
To make sure people are still getting the support they need, I'll be taking part in Shine Walk Your Way. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now!
