While going through chemo there were days where finding the energy to get out of bed was hard, and standing in the shower meant sitting on the bathroom floor for five minutes to summon the energy to get back to bed. I pushed myself to remain as active as possible throughout chemotherapy treatment but a couple of months on, a busy day or two can mean an afternoon in bed. For this reason to walk 10,000 steps a day for a month will be such an achievement for me.
Cancer research has been significant in how my cancer was diagnosed and the treatment I have received. Without Cancer Research I wouldn’t have known that I had a genetic predisposition. Knowing this meant I got annual MRIs and my cancer was detected early. Because of Cancer Research my cancer could be profiled so that I can now receive treatment that specifically targets the proteins and hormones that helped my cancer grow.
Cancer Research has helped not just in my treatment but also in treatment of family and friends with all sorts of cancers.
Please donate what you can to help ensure that we keep evolving in our understanding and treatments of cancer.
