My Story

I feel incredibly privileged to work with the most amazing people everyday. Patients who have fought and are fighting cancer and carers who are the backbone and support system for those people. They help us make a difference everyday. The least I can do is go 3 rounds in the ring with a colleague!! *sings Rocky theme tune* I lost my Granda to cancer 5 years ago and boxing was his sport - he loved it! So I'm hoping that he's looking down on me and thinking "Go on Sarah, that's my girl!" And my Dad has very luckily received treatment for his own cancer, which was developed through research and clinical trials, which means he'll be here to walk me down the aisle soon. Every single day, our researchers work tirelessly in the lab to try and beat cancer. And it's only through clinical trials that we are able to turn those findings into treatments and get them to the patients in the clinic to help save their lives. Please sponsor me as I pretend to be Rocky! Thank you! Sarah x
