In memory of my sister Heidi and friend Larry, and in Hope to one day beat this horrible disease.

In memory of

Heidi Lagasse and Laurence Andersen

My sister Heidi was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma in November 2014, and at the time none of us knew what that would mean. Over the next two years she endured so much: countless tests, major surgery and punishing treatments, but kept her humour and remained hopeful. The treatments, while brutal, allowed her to see a few more birthdays, celebrate a few more Thanksgivings and Christmases, and see her youngest daughter off to pre-school. She was transitioned to hospice care in early 2017 and passed away in March 2017.

My friend Laurence (Larry), was diagnosed with Lymphoma along side us taking our final accountancy exams in November 2015. Over the next year he received numerous treatments, each one more invasive than the last, but he still managed to come back to work, go to watch football, and travel around Europe. He had planned to try more novel immunotherapy treatments, before he passed away in April 2017.

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.
