Amazing Maria's Cancer Battle

My dear friend Maria, one of the most amazing women I know has been fighting a huge 2 year battle against breast cancer, which has left her with limited life expectancy.

Maria had surgery, recently had radiotherapy and immunotherapy and is now starting a second cycle of chemotherapy. Something a beautiful young woman shouldn't be doing.

As a number of people expressed the wish to assist so I started thinking what to do.

I’m not one to do a parachute jump or fire walking and I’m not a runner - so have chosen to show solidarity to Maria and Brave the Shave, the hair is all coming off on 19th July 2020 at 12.30.

Please sponsor me and help bring some sunshine to a very special friend, and make some of Maria’s wishes come true.

Thank you for anything that you can contribute. X
