I’m running the 101010 in October to help raise funds for research into secondary breast cancer.
My pragmatic bestie, Em, is an amazing woman and is a cancer thriver. She has taught me so much about her incurable secondary breast cancer, including how little money goes towards this incredibly important research.
I desperately want to help Em and others like her so if this goes just a tiny little way to help then I’ll plod, train and eventually run a 10k.
Secondary breast cancer is breast cancer which has spread from the breast to other parts of the body. Although secondary breast cancer can be treated, there is no cure. Unlike those living with primary breast cancer, there is no end of treatment, there is no remission.
It’s estimated that 35,000 people are currently living with secondary breast cancer in the UK yet only 7% of the National funding for cancer goes towards this incurable disease. Make 2nds Count aim to address this imbalance.
Please give anything that you can and be assured that your money be incredibly well spent.
Thank you so much xx
