Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This March I’m walking 10,000 steps a day throughout the month to help beat cancer sooner. Help me Walk All Over Cancer and fund life-saving research by sponsoring me. Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Cancer Research UK.
My mum was originally diagnosed with cancer in the winter of 1987, the year I graduated, and she fought the disease bravely for twelve long and painful years, nursed lovingly by my father and sisters. I will never forget how quickly she went downhill in the last six months and am forever grateful to the MacMillan nurses who attended her at home, to help make her passing as comfortable and as graceful as possible. Their administering of the morphine drip allowed all of us (her four children) the opportunity to say our goodbyes and pay our last respects before she passed away peacefully in her sleep.
If your contributions can in some small way help to either diagnose someone earlier, or to help make someone's course of treatment more successful, then we will have achieved something magical. So please give as much as you can afford.
