Story

Hello Everyone!

Six months ago a good friend was given the news every parent fears, one of their girls had been diagnosed with Childhood leaukemia! Since then we have watched as Vega has undergone treatment after treatment and I am constantly amazed at the courage and strengh shown by the whole family as they battle to beat this disease, I laugh and cry at the highs and lows and feel sad that there isn't much I can do to help day to day. The one thing I can do is help to raise money to stamp out all forms of Cancer by walking a half Marathon around the streets of London at night! This time I have chosen childrens cancer.

Thank you for visiting my Shine fundraising page in support of children's cancer research. Please dig deep and sponsor me, any amount however small will be very gratefully recieved – it’s quick, easy and totally secure.

Today around three-quarters of children with cancer are successfully treated. In the 1960s it was just a quarter. Cancer Research UK's many successful clinical trials on children’s cancer have helped to transform the outlook for these children and their families. But around 300 children a year still lose their lives to the disease, so their groundbreaking work has to continue.

Cancer Research UK is funded entirely by amazing supporters like you. By sponsoring me you can help more children survive cancer.

Every pound you donate really does make a difference to Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating children's cancers – so please sponsor me now!

Gift Aid it!

If you are a UK taxpayer, please remember to tick the Gift Aid box when donating as this will increase your donation by at least 25% at no cost to you.

Many thanks for your support.

Together we will beat cancer.
