Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I have reached the target for 2018: PLEASE keep donating as I move into 2019! Target set to £2,000. More money made to be added to the existing total.
I am a breast cancer survivor, and back on the trail of that elusive goal, the precious gift that will one day rid us of such soul destroying darkness: a cure for breast cancer will free many women and men of its dreadful cloak - one that wraps without kindness, its touch has no comfort, and for those who wear it...
Bring the light and give it your energy. If we all stand together, then very soon, we will know just where to shine it. And regardless of the country currently spurring you into action, it means the same end result for everyone.
All your thoughts and donations will be a massive step to that magic. As well as a donation, I am asking you to share this page/or my posts if you see them, and tell everyone you see each day about it too and how they can help change this world - sadly, for far too many people.
My reasons and plan of action:
Since my own battle with breast cancer and recovery, to years later helping to look after my mother then watch her die horribly from lung cancer, I have striven to fight in the hope we can eradicate all forms of cancer from our lives and make a better future possible.
March/April 2019: At the moment, as well as trying to obtain as many donations as possible, I am working tirelessly in my second year of fundraising, to create an array of my hand crafted goods, finding events to sell them at. The response has been great! (See my updates below).
At my first event (I had table at a Christmas Fair) turn out was poor and not craft orientated. I sold sweets, raffle tickets, lucky dips and some of my items - my lovely husband sold a lot more of my crafts where he works, so that made up for it.
Hopefully no snow...
I worked on projects for my next event as always. It could be in a local church. My last one was the Forum shopping centre, and it went very well. I'm also using as much recycle as I can to maintain my efforts in an ongoing fight to slow down waste on the planet. I will carry on foregoing all gifts within my control, and that money too will be sent to cancer research… why not try it for a while!
Moving forward and throughout 2018, I will periodically be begging from businesses (asking for donations of goods), since things went well pre Christmas. I am hoping to garner interest in a catalogue I am assembling, and will only surface for treats… maybe.
Again, all of the money raised will go to aid valuable Cancer/BC research and we will find the minds that will help us beat all cancers once and for all.
The tireless work at Cancer research right now means almost 8 in 10 women diagnosed survive their disease for 10 years or more thanks to the support from fundraising and donations. The organisation receives no government funding, which will make what you and I raise, very inspiring. But there's so much more to be done. More than 130 women today will be told they have breast cancer.
Here are just some of the key areas your money will go to:
£1,000 kits out a PhD student with the essentials they need to start their fight against cancer.
£225 covers the cost of fifteen visits to a mobile awareness unit for advice on reducing the risk of cancer, signs and symptoms. These visits can save lives.
£600 buys a multi channel pipette. This means scientists can accurately measure 12 things at once, speeding up the pace of life saving research.
£302 buys special chemicals, called antibodies, to light up vital, tiny parts of the cell, to shed light on new ways to beat cancer sooner.
Cancer Research thanks everybody everywhere doing their bit, and I thank you for coming here, reading and hopefully for your support.
I would really appreciate it if you could pass around my text code which is:
BGON64 then the amount (e.g. BGON64 £1-10) to 70070 (in the UK only). Thank you!
