What is crowdfunding?

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.


In 2016 my world was turned upside as I was diagnosed with Breast cancer. Going through Chemotherapy , Radiotheraphy and several operations, certainly gives you a new appreciation for the gift of life.

To have to fight cancer, and the side effects of treatments, including loosing your hair, nerve damage, infection after infections, the mental side effects of having that battled, only those having gone through it or those closest to you will ever comprehend the long term side effects.

I will never be able to thank Cancer care, and the Rotherham Chemotherapy nurses, for looking after me like they did, and help me find myself again.

Shortly after treatment finished, I am ashamed to admit, I was suicidal, The pain I was having was awful, I was emotional, being pushed through a chemo induced menopause , it was hard to fight to find a life again, But there was help at hand , and I realised I wasnt alone after all, This was normal, and this is why we need the charities, and make people aware of the incredible work they do.

I have met some wonderful people during my journey, some now will be lifelong friends who have gone through treatment, and some who sadly didn't make it.

On Sunday 1st July 2018 i will be taking part in the 10 k race for life. I want to be able to give something back to the amazing cancer care charities, and also to a hospice, who cared for my friends mum

I will be running in memory of. Carol Webster, Linda Darby, Lindsay Hutchinson, and Niamh power,. RIP.

Linda Darby, sadly passed away at the Pilgrim Hospice in Kent earlier this year. She fought Cancer for many years, and has an amazing inspire daughter I am good friends with. I cant imagine anything worse than loosing your mum , so I would love to be able to donate in her memory also


I would love it if you can help my to exceed my target. I know it will make a difference to peoples lives. Every £1 helps,

Please please donate

Thank you for reading
