Thanks for visiting our just giving page. Me, Sara and Meg will be running in the 'Race For Life' on June 23rd in Oldham.
My mum was diagnosed with breast cancer in September of last year and is currently undergoing treatment.
We are running the race not only to raise money but also to raise awareness.
All doctors, surgeons and nurses have been fantastic and we wanted to give something back to Cancer research so it may help another family one day eradicate this awful disease.
Every day more than 140 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK. We want to raise as much money as we can to keep improving the odds of survival for each and everyoneI hope that you will donate to Cancer Research UK as we all want to find a cure for this horrible disease, and this is only possible through funding so that the research can continue.
Ø For every £10 raised, it contributes to buying enough glass slides for one of their scientists to examine 300 tumour samples down a microscope.
Ø Every £50 raised will buy around 22 thermometers, vital for many cancer-fighting experiments that need performed at precise temperatures.
Ø For every £94 raised, it will help cover the cost for one woman to take part in a clinical trial aiming to improve survival for post-menopausal women with early-stage breast cancer.
Ø For every £120 raised, it will help train cancer nurses to listen and give advice to patients over the phone, providing the best support for the people they speak to.
These are only a few examples of where your money will actually go and I really do hope all my friends can help us reach a substantial amount of money towards this wonderful cause. Whether you donate a little or a lot, it all helps, and goes towards the research of this horrible disease that has took so many lives. Be part of the fight against cancer.
Every pound you donate really does make a difference
Many thanks for your support. Together we will beat cancer
