We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help us beat cancer


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Here is a little of my story:

You are probably wondering why I have chosen this charity and what it means to me. My grandma on my fathers side was diagnosed with Myeloma in 2004 and told she only had 3 years to live. Thankfully she was a very strong women and lived for 13 years despite her diagnosis. However, this certain type of cancer is incurable and therefore laboratories need more money to go towards scientific research to find the cure for this disease. Also other people I am close to in my life have recently been diagnosed with other types of cancer.

Another reason for doing this is because I have noticed recently the effects of stress and pressure social media has on girls especially. They are always so worried about appearance and how it portrays them as a person and I want to show that how you look is not who you are.
