I'm walking at Shine Night Walk in the fight to beat cancer

I am walking to raise money for Ovarian Cancer. My mother in law suddenly discovered that she had Advanced Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer in October last year. She enrolled to take part in a relatively new trial drug called Avastin, and the treatment she has received has been phenomenal. She continues on this journey, and after a successful operation and sessions of chemotherapy, no traces of cancer remain. I feel it is important to raise money, so that others have the chance to have these treatments to fight cancer too. Many more that we know and love are also going along this same road. Life is precious. Lets help more people to live theirs to the full.

Ovarian cancer

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.
