Shine Night Walk - Full Marathon
Sat 23 Sep 2017
To save the lives of girls and women by supporting Cancer Research UK.
In 2016, when I was 26 years old, I went to the doctor for a routine smear test. The test results showed severe abnormalities in my cervix which turned out to be stage 3 pre-cancerous cells. At the time, I did not have any symptoms or signs which would have indicated the abnormalities. I was required to have an invasive operation to surgically remove the cells, if I had not had the surgery, the cells would have developed into cancer. Early detection saved my life. If I had missed the smear test or postponed it, my life could have changed irreversibly. I feel incredibly lucky and grateful that the condition was found early enough as a result of attending a routine smear test. We can help prevent Cervical Cancer by supporting the groundbreaking research carried out by Cancer Research UK. On September 23rd 2017, I will be completing the Shine Night Walk - a Full Marathon – my first fundraising activity for this cause. I would be grateful for any donations which will enable Cancer Research UK to continue to save the lives of girls and women.
In the 1970s, almost half of women diagnosed with cervical cancer survived their disease beyond ten years, now it's almost two-thirds . Help fund Cancer Research UK to continue its work to save lives through screening and better treatments.
