Weʼre raising £500 to For FIGHTBACC, to help fund research for ACC.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This summer I will be cycling the Ride London 100, a 100 mile bike ride through London and the Surrey hills, a huge personal challenge.
I would also like to use this challenge as an opportunity to raise as much as I can for FIGHTBACC, a charity supporting research to help those suffering from Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC) a rare form of incurable cancer.
FIGHTBACC was launched by Ella Pinney who was diagnosed with ACC while working for my Father and so this is a cause very close to home and I would love to raise as much as I can to support Ella, her husband James and their young daughter Olivia.
ACC typically presents in the head and neck and has a slow, sometimes relentless progression with frequent recurrences and metastases to sites such as the lungs, liver and bones. It can strike anyone and is not inherited or associated with smoking and drinking. It tends to affect young and middle aged people with the median age at diagnosis a decade younger than other forms of cancer. It cannot be cured by chemotherapy and there are no approved targeted drugs to help sufferers, research needs vital funding to find effective therapies for ACC sufferers.
