I am "Braving the Shave" on 27th October to raise valuable funds for cancer research carried out in Belfast N.I.  This research is carried out in Belfast at the Centre for Cancer research in the City Hospital, bringing together the best teams from Queen's University Belfast, the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust and other local organisations to help beat cancer sooner.

My beautiful Mum was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer at the age of 52 and fought the disease for 8 years - we were originally told her life expectancy was 6 months.  However due to the research carried out and the development of new drugs, each time she required chemotherapy, an alternative drug was available which yet again eradicated the tumours. for example, drugs were available 4 years into her battle which were not available when she was diagnosed.

My Mum was a fighter and a very strong and determined lady. 

This is called Brave the Shave, but I am not brave: my Mum and those continuing to fight this terrible disease are the brave ones.

Please support me in anyway you can - no donation too little.

Many many thanks
