Story

I have recently undergone surgery and chemotherapy to overcome Bladder Cancer. The diagnosis came out of the blue and shocked us all to the core. 

I received 7 units of blood and I challenge everyone to donate if they are able. My friends have already replaced 14 units but it would be great to do more.

I am now undergoing immunotherapy to keep the cancer at bay and want to raise as much money as possible.

My husband did a blog of some of the journey. Read it here  (you will need to copy and paste. Just Giving restriction) https://davidwalkerfj.blogspot.com/2019/07/cancer-is-hell-documenting-lauras.html 

Bladder cancer is the 5th largest cancer in the country with a 50% survival rate from time of diagnosis - We need to do better and we can with more research.

Fight Bladder Cancer was founded and is run by patients and carers and how now grown to become the most active advocacy group and charity for bladder cancer in the UK. FBC provides information and support to everyone affected by bladder cancer, runs national and local awareness campaigns, supports medical research into better treatments and campaigns at the highest levels to turn the spotlight on this much-neglected cancer.We can only do our work with the support of individuals across the country who make fundraise and donate to us.
