I am taking part in this years shine for London half marathon, along with some other friends and family, to raise awareness for ovarian cancer in memory of our dear friend Kirsty , who sadly passed away last October 2021 from ovarian cancer aged only 47 years old . Kirsty was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 39 and battled with it for nearly 7 years , she briefly was in remission in 2016 but sadly the cancer returned again a few years later . Kirsty was cruelly taken from her lovely family and friends too soon . She was an amazing friend to many , a great teacher , wife , daughter, sister , auntie and an amazing mummy to her 3 lovely children Alice , Oliver and Eliza . She will be sadly missed by all . Kirsty was a very positive person and even during her Terrible illness , she still managed to stay positive and continued to think of others , raising money and Awareness of ovarian cancer . Even in her last few weeks she still raised a smile and a joke . Kirsty loved to walk so what better way to remember her and continue her fight for ovarian cancer research.
Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cancer in UK women, with more than 130 women every week told that they have the disease. It is often not diagnosed until it has spread, making it harder to treat. Help Cancer Research UK find new ways to detect ovarian cancer earlier and find better treatments.
