Story

 

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My name is Heidi, I am 35 & a BRCA 1 gene mutation carrier.

This means I have a 85% chance of contracting breast cancer & a 60% chance of contracting ovarian cancer at some point in my life.

I have 2 children, my daughter Mya who is 2 & my son Hayden who is 9 months.  My children have a 50% chance of also being carriers of this gene mutation.

Next year I will be having risk reducing surgery, a double masectomy with reconstruction and my ovaries removed.

Due to this I am trying to raise awareness & money so that a cure can be found to stop future generations having to make the same decisions I have.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer.

So please dig deep and donate now.
