Come next June I will take to the Alps to take part in a 3 day trek raising money for Worldwide Cancer Research with Global Adventure Challenges. This charity funds research for all types of cancer in the whole world, funding projects globally to gather a better prospective of cancer in some of the best research institutions. There are more than 200 types, all different and all unique. Therefore each one will require unique approaches and individualised treatments.
As you can imagine this comes at a high cost and just would not be possible without funding. Funds will help to develop a better understanding and create more effective treatments. It's quite simple, without funding we immediately stop investing in the future health of our children and the world we live in would change forever.
6 months ago, I lost my sister to cancer. She was a true fighter, there really was nobody quite like her, words will never describe how amazing she was as a person. She left this world sadly leaving us all in despair. I always think of her, I know I am not alone in that. Cancer is a complete bitch. There is no other way to describe it. We all miss her very much and it hurts all the time. I see her in everything I do. I can't help but feel I could never do anything to help her and hated it so much. She was stolen from us too soon and I will never get that time back with her. All the love in the world and it couldn't save her. Believe me she tried damn hard to hang on, but she was tired, she needed to let go. We piece ourselves together for her, continue her legacy and devote our lives to the strength family gives us. This strength can be so easily shattered, place it gently in your heart and never let it go.
So here is where I ask YOU to help me in my personal journey.
I really need your help in this mission of mine, I want to prevent this from happening to other people. I hope you can find a way to help me. This is for our future and generations to come.
I aim to have raised the minimum required by March, obviously anything more than that is a huge bonus. I will continue to campaign for all my patients out there until June. I will accompanied by my loving boyfriend Chris and a great bunch of other campaigners all on their own journey.
I will do whatever it takes, wherever it takes me.
Thank you so much for your support.
