Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page - 50 at 50 for Pancreatic Cancer

Sometimes in life you just get to that ‘why not’ moment, and
that happened in the Spring of 2019 when my uncle’s 6 month course of chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer failed to halt the disease and he was given a terminal diagnosis. I had also lost my father to this cruel disease in 2006.

I will be turning 50 in September of 2019 and I just thought
‘Why not complete 50 different events with the aim of raising money for research into pancreatic cancer?’ – so 50 at 50 for pancreatic cancer was born #50at50forPCRF 

Visit www.braveheartfitness.co.uk/50 for details of the evetns I will be completing, Ultra walks, Half Marathons, a SkyDive, an Abseil and many more mad things! 

Survival rates for most forms of cancer have been rising,
the five-year survival rates for pancreatic cancer have remained largely  unchanged and shockingly low for the past 40 years, at less than 5%: this is the worst survival outcome for any of the 21 most common cancers., compare that to breast cancer where the survival rates - the average 5-year survival rate for women with invasive breast cancer is 90%. Money is desperately needed for research so that we can help safeguard against others losing their loved ones
to this forbidding disease.;..

Between my 50th and my 51st birthday I plan to take on some interesting challenges with the hope of raising much  needed funds, seeing some new sights and making some new friends.
