I am a cancer survivor and on 22nd of September I'm walking at Shine Night Walk in the fight to beat cancer!

In September 2017 while being on a short holiday in Moldova, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma. When I was given the news I had no idea what Lymphoma was and how it could affect my life. After reading up on this type of cancer I was scared and found my diagnosis very hard to accept.
Hodgkin Lymphoma is the most common type on cancer in the UK. It can occur at any age, even in children. It occurs when lymphocytes (white blood cells that help to fight infection) become out of control. They divide in an abnormal way or do not die when they should.

After 7 months of chemotherapy treatment during which my life has completely changed, I fortunately won the battle!!
Cancer does not define me but, but is has had a huge impact on me. It makes me realise how strong I am and I am thankful for everyday now.

I wanted to set myself a meaningful personal challenge after my doctor announced me that I was officially in remission. And for this year I decided to take part in the Shine Walk Half Marathon which will take place in London on 22nd of September and raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Your donation will help Cancer Research UK's pioneering work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer to save millions of lives!

Thank you all for your support !

Breast cancer

With almost 140 women diagnosed every day, breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. And, although rarer, around 350 men are also diagnosed with breast cancer every year. The good news is more than two-thirds of women now survive 20 years or more. Help Cancer Research UK find new ways to diagnose and treat the disease.
