We fund ground-breaking medical research to improve treatments for women's cancers


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.


In 2016 while racing for Podium Ambition, my daughter collapsed and was taken to hospital. Following tests that were carried out a cyst was found which turned out to be ovarian cancer.

One in five women survive ovarian cancer. After an extensive operation my daughter made a successful recovery. I remember the feeling of helplessness when I was first told the news of her condition, and then after the operation she was given the all clear. My feelings at this time were like the re-birth of my daughter and the unbelievable relief that she had a second chance at life. I was in tears. Then my thoughts went to the other 4 parents that would have not been as lucky as us and how their lives must have changed after the sad loss of their daughters. That is why the early detection that G.R.A.C.E. is trying to develop is so important and needs your funding now. This will help to save lives of younger women and to enable to them to have a full family life.

My trek will be 192 miles long walking from one coast to the other and will be self funded. During the trek I will be posting updates to keep all of you updated. I might even show you how sore my feet are :) 

Please donate whatever you can to help with the good work that G.R.A.C.E. are carrying out for these young women.
