We fund research and raise awareness to transform treatments and survival rates


When I was 9 years old my Mum got diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. She had to have a full hysterectomy and then a few weeks later start chemotherapy treatment. The treatment made her lose all her hair, she lost a lot of weight and was often very tired. She used to go out for a lot of runs and was very sporty so it was odd to see her like this. Mum came into school and gave a talk in chapel about how scary cancer can be, but she me realise that you to be positive however difficult things might get. Once she had recovered from her operation she started going out for short runs again and tried to keep herself as strong as she could. Mum is now back at work, running lots and doing really well. 

If it wasn't for people that donate and raise money for these charities the research and medicine might not have been found to help my Mum and others like her. So I want to do my bit to help in the fight against this horrible disease.   

Over half term, and just after my 11th birthday, I am going to run 43 miles. This is the distance from our home to the hospital where Mum had her operation, and back. I know it will be really hard, but it's just running and I haven't had to go through as much as other people. So every day I don't want to do it I am going to think of my Mum and all those other women and girls who are fighting Ovarian cancer.
