Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As usual with me, this was another last minute sign up for the Hackney Half to try and raise a bit of money for the wonderful St Barts Hospital and their Team. St Barts has treated Hattie (my girlfriend) for Breast Cancer over the last 8 months where she recently finished her final Chemotherapy on the 16th May, marking the end of a momentous occasion for us both.

Please donate anything you can to help support further research into many different cancers at this wonderful hospital. It's thanks to amazing and ever-changing research into Cancer research, meant that Hattie could have the best drugs available on the NHS.

What St Barts. Charity Do:

St Barts charity supports the remarkable work of staff and researchers at the Barts Health group of hospitals and Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, funding ground-breaking research, state-of-the-art equipment, and innovative healthcare projects.

Funding world-leading research projects at Barts Cancer Institute, as well as enabling talented young doctors to take time out from their clinical studies to carry out vital studies.  

The difference we’re making
  • Funding five translatable research projects at Bart Cancer Institute which have been identified as key targets for research in the next decade
  • Recruiting leading scientists to take forward programmes of research
  • Enabling researchers to study the cancer stroma, cancer prevention, genomics, and the behavior of cancer cells and how they respond to treatment 
  • Supporting research in cancer screening and early diagnosis, including the development of new ‘self testing’ HPV kits to make screening for cervical cancer easier and developing a new way to scan patients for prostate cancer, to detect tumours earlier when they are easier to treat
  • Funding six clinical research fellows to further research into immunobiology in blood cancers
