I’M RAISING MONEY FOR STAND UP TO CANCER

Hello friends, We’re back for the 2nd Annual “Scotts 24 hour gameathon”. And once again we’re raising money for Stand Up To Cancer. As some people will know, I had a bit of a scare at the start of this year, which resulted in a pretty neck scar to match my dads and also half of my thyroid being removed. Thankfully after a nerve wracking 6 week wait my tumour turned out to be benign (phew)! But what really amazed me was that my surgeon had a treatment plan for every eventuality. And after seeing my dad go through treatment (surgery and radiotherapy) it made me appreciate how lucky we are to live in a time where cancer no longer means something bad and with our amazing NHS, cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence. And that’s only possible because of research and fundraising to make that research continue. And so at 9am on 14 December I will begin my 24 hour gameathon. I’ll be streaming it all so I’ll share a link closer to the time. Last year we made £330 which was amazing, however this year I’m looking to hit £350. So please, give what you can. Because it really can happen to anyone. And unfortunately not everyone is as lucky as I was.

Stand Up to Cancer: LIFE-SAVING RESEARCH

100% of the money you raise goes towards speeding up life-saving research. Every day, scientists and researchers work tirelessly to beat cancer. But lab researchers will not get us there alone. Every penny raised helps speed up breakthroughs in the lab, transforming them into new tests and treatments for patients who need them. The research you fund will help us see 3 in 4 people in the UK survive their cancer by 2034.
