I’m dedicating my wellness walks to Cancer Research this month, walking 56 miles in February to help beat cancer

My Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This February, I’m walking 56 miles to help raise money for Cancer Research UK. In November 2021 I was diagnosed with breast cancer after a routine screening mammogram. I am between treatments just now so I want to keep well and fit for the next stage of treatment. Exercise is a vital part of my well-being physically and mentally just now, and is one of the things we can all do to reduce or risk of having cancer. I am so grateful for all the research that has gone into the treatment I am receiving. There are many types of cancer for which we don’t yet have adequate screening or treatment. 1 in 2 of us will get cancer in our lifetime. All of us can support the research that will beat it. Help fund life-saving research by making a donation to my page. I know there are a lot of pressures on everyone’s finances at the moment but even if everyone could chip in a pound it would make an important contribution.


All Cancer Types

Cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. Consistent progress is being made but improvements to technology and ground-breaking work offer new opportunities to find different ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and improve survival rates even further. Help Cancer Research UK improve results even faster.
