Thank you for visiting my Cancer Research UK Veg Pledge page. I will be going vegan this November to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
Cancer is infiltrating and devastating so many of us. My family are still coming to terms with the recent and so untimely passing of my uncle. My grandad succumbed to the disease a few years ago and my brother was diagnosed with leukaemia when he was 3 years old. Thankfully he's now an 18 year old survivor. But inbetween all these times so many more people that I know, or know of, have fallen victim to this brutal disease. Some kicked it. Many didn't. Cancer is becoming too common and we need to get a cure.
When I saw this fundraising campaign advertised I knew I had to do this. I've watched the growing trend for the vegan lifestyle and always knew that it was definitely not for me. However, listening to my friend talking about why he adopted this lifestyle had my brain ticking over. I started to become more aware of what I was eating and found myself unable to happily consume the meat and dairy that I was used to. I started thinking 'oh my gosh am I a vegan now??' - lol. But everyone knows I'm not really into new taste experiences so I concluded that I would end up eating nothing then. But I saw that Cancer Research were running this fundraising campaign and I decided that this was going to be my way to try it out. If I'm being sponsored then I HAVE to commit. So please sponsor me as I will embark on this journey, learning about new foods and my health at the same time as raising money for an especially worthy charity.
The money I raise will help fund life-saving research to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. Please show your support with a donation to my page to meet my target. Thank you :)
