Weʼre raising £10,000 to fund well-being sessions raising awareness of hidden signs for women & carers who have experienced cancer, in memory of Dr Bernadette Tynan
- Manchester, United Kingdom
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.
We want to celebrate the life of Dr Bernadette Tynan, who died from Endometrial Cancer in August 2017. At her request, we aim to host a series of Well-being days, raising awareness of hidden signs through positive well-being approaches like cooking & eating together, yoga, nutrition and counselling for cancer sufferers and carers. We want to bring goodness back into people's lives. This will be run in collaboration with healthcare professionals, venue in Manchester TBC by end of January.
Run by Cracking Good Food (www.crackinggoodfood.org), a not for profit social enterprise, the funds will enable us to continue the forthcoming programme on International Womens' day (8th March 2018), which would also be her 52nd birthday. The launch event will be FREE due to her donation to us for this to happen, although we would be grateful for donations on a pay as you feel able basis so that sessions can continue for as long as possible. We are crowdfunding for this to happen on an on-going basis.
She wanted no-one to suffer as she did, so in her memory we're spreading awareness of hidden signs as much as we can through these well-being days.
The video will show you how a strong and driven she was as a woman. It was filmed, at her request, 4 weeks before she sadly died.
Let's hope we can reduce such suffering by informing as many women out there of the hidden signs. We need to look after ourselves and each other. Life is so precious. For further info: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the late stages of endometrial cancer, Dr. Bernadette Tynan candidly describes the dangers of mis-diagnosis and the early warning signs that women should be aware of.
