Everyone knows someone who has been effected by Cancer. The chances of developing it are high and it is difficult to treat. This means our battle against it is far from over, rather that it is only the beginning. By donating, you help in that fight against it.
On a more personal note – I lost my Father to Leukemia (a cancer of the blood) back on 1st June 2004. After a 6 month fight, it claimed him and took him away from his loving family. I was 9 years old at the time, my brother was 11 years old. Sitting next to him as the doctors turned off the life support machine was the single most difficult thing I’ve ever had to do and I would wish it would happen to no one else. The time, however, for wishing is over and action against cancer and all the pain it causes to families like mine begin again.
So, this year, I have joined the Shine London walk 2017. In which we walk for 13.1 miles, at night, whilst covered in lights ( I know, I finally get to be a fairy!!) to raise money. A worthy challenge for a worthy cause.
I have set a target of £500 but PLEASE give freely as it all goes to a fantastic Cause and as they say, the more the merrier!
I hope I can make my Dad proud and raise as much as I can and hopefully help sufferers and their families.
