Story

We are undertaking this cycle challenge to raise awareness of women`s cancer and to raise money in order to fund  research, treatments and support services for individuals and their families.  

We have  both been fortunate in our health. Neither of us have 
been physically affected by ovarian, breast or cervical cancer. However,  many of our close friends and families have
been touched by cancer and continue to live with its effects.  It is likely that you too know someone who has been touched by cancer.

Here are some of the statistics for women`s cancer:

Each year in the UK, around 3.000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer.  Cervical cancer is the most common cancer for women aged 35 and under. 

Every year 55,000 women and men will receive devastating news that they have breast cancer.

Ovarian cancer is the biggest gynecological killer of women in the UK.  12 Women die each day from the disease and the UK has one of the lowest survival rates of the developed well. 

If you are able to support this cause we would be very grateful and appreciative for a donation towards this worthy course.

Thank you   Ruth  and Helen
