    Story

    Thank you for visiting our just giving page.

    On the 23rd of October Frances together with Angela Sparke are walking 115km along the Camino walk to raise funds for Caroline Conway who is undergoing Chemotherapy for lung. Although, strong dear Caroline needs alternative treatment the Cyber knife to get to the tumours. Despite its name, the CyberKnife System is not a surgical procedure. In fact, there is no cutting involved. Instead, the CyberKnife System delivers high doses of radiation directly to brain tumours. Since then caroline amazingly has being allowed the treatment of the cyber knife, the standard for reducing cell size. However, we now need the gamma knife the gold standard this will almost diminish the tumours. the tumours have being growing so we need to act.

    It is never easy asking for help, fighting cancer isn't easy either! dignity, self worth, pain and pride are really secondary for what my dearest friend is going through.

    Caroline is 50, a traditional lady with good old fashioned values. She is known as 'see you next tuesday' ( she never turned up to university on a tuesday and i still don't know why) a little joke amongst her uni friends. An uplifting, humorus person to be around and always there when you need her. She raised 2 beautiful sons, single handedly and worked throughout her life.

    Well this is it, we can't look back! Please help donate however much or little you can.

    Keep donating

    We will be creating more fund raising over the next years with our uni friends and my son Jago now 12 and I will cycle the Camino next summer.
