I'm walking at Shine Night Walk to help beat cancer

In memory of

Claire O'Reilly

Last year I lost my beloved and beautiful Mam to ovarian cancer. It's a cancer that is extremely difficult to detect, especially in the early-mid stages, and all too commonly it isn't diagnosed until it's too late. Ovarian cancer is poorly publicised in the media, and the survival rate is shockingly low. There has been very little improvement in diagnostic methods, treatment or survival rates since the 1970s.

I'm doing the Cancer Research UK Night Walk in memory of my beloved Mam and to raise funds to support research into effective detection methods and treatments for ovarian cancer. This is a shockingly horrible and insidious cancer that urgently needs extra funding and publicity.

Each year Cancer Research UK’s scientists get closer to beating cancer, and they’ve helped double survival rates in the last 40 years. But we can’t stop there. Only with our continued support can they turn this research into breakthroughs that save millions of lives. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.

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.
