Weʼre raising £1,000 to help fund research for the GCS project, in memory of Dianne.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Gynecological Carcinosarcoma (GCS) is a rare and aggressive cancer found primarily in the ovaries and uterus, it is also known as MMMT or malignant mixed Müllerian tumour.
GCS is rare. Fewer than 1,000 cases of GCS are diagnosed each year. Because carcinosarcoma is so rare, there has been limited research or clinical trials that focus on GCS. Unfortunately, this is where the cures will be found. Little or no research results in no cures or effective treatments for us. In order for us to have a fighting chance, we must aggressively support new and ongoing research so that Not One More Woman Will Die from this rotten cancer. - GCS project.
Thank you for all your thoughtful words and support over recent days/weeks/months.
Dianne died peacefully in the morning of the 8th March 2018 at the Royal Marsden where she had been very well cared for, not only in her last week, but throughout the course of her illness.
She wouldn’t want flowers, rather support of the research into her specific condition to improve treatment and survival (virtually no general cancer funding currently goes towards it I believe due to its rarity).

Lots of love
