Story

This year, we would like to put our self to the test and raise as much money as we can for Cancer Research UK.
 
In 2017, Libby and her brother Bailey sadly lost their beautiful Mum Jo.
At age  42 Jo, was diagnosed with Melanoma. She beat this, but then in 2017 Jo was then diagnosed with bowel cancer and lost her battle on 31st August 2017 at age 48.
Libby was 22 at the time and her brother 18.  As you can imagine, Libby and Bailey’s world was turned upside down and had to come to terms with the loss of their mother at such a young age.
Naturally Libby and Bailey were heartbroken, but instead of becoming victims and dwelling in sadness (which would only be natural) they both have been incredibly positive and decided to celebrate their mums life.
 
In 1998, I lost my grandma to bowel cancer, she was only 59.

How can life pass by without the most important people in your life being there to share it with you?!?


My grandma was too embarrassed to go to the doctors, so by the time she did; her cancer was 6” long – the same size as a small ruler. She had no chance.
 
This year myself and Libby have decided to do our bit and plan to raise money, raise awareness and celebrate those we miss.
 
On February 23rd, Jo would have been 50 and so to mark the occasion, we plan on embarking on
50 CHALLENGES. These need to be completed by Jo’s 51st birthday.  We intend for these challenges to be gruelling and a real test. If we want you to back us and donate plenty of money, we really need to push ourselves.


Once these have been completed, we will have a HUGE fundraising party to celebrate with all proceeds going to our cause.
