Thank you for visiting our fundraising page.
We, that is me, Delphine, Sarah, Sally and some other friends and paddlers, are going to complete a stand-up paddlathon along the Wey Navigation and some of the Basingstoke Canal in Surrey. We're starting in Godalming at 8am and continuing until 8pm on Saturday 9th June 2018. We will have paddled over 20 miles and portage round 25 locks.
We are fundraising for one of my very dear friends, Julie, who has inflammatory breast cancer. Julie has been on a roller-coaster of a journey: her cancer was diagnosed in November 2012. By 2014, the cancer had spread to Julie's liver, lungs, bones and brain and she was told that any further treatment could only control, not cure, the disease. Julie underwent over 40 cycles of targeted chemotherapy and has had her brain cyberknifed several times. Her body is starting to struggle with the effect of these treatments so Julie is now living thanks to alternative, non-NHS therapies. Any money we raise will go to Julie's fund whichihelps pay for therapies that can support and strengthen Julie's immune system, with the ultimate goal of providing precious time with her family and friends.
This all sounds really sad, but trust me, it's not all doom and gloom. Julie has lots of people supporting her and words cannot describe how amazing she is - Julie is always there for her two sons, husband, parents and her many friends. She is one of the most vibrant and enthusiastic people I know and is always thinking of others. This is myway of helping her. We really hope you can join us in supporting Julie's fight against this disease.
