My names Lou Nicholls and from the 19th May 2016 i plan on trekking to Machu Pichu on behalf of Marie Curie.
In May 2009 my wonderful mum was rushed into hospital, she was suffering from undiagnosed Ovarian Cancer. It had been lurking for way too long, unspotted. She survived emergency surgery, the Cancer though had got quite far at this stage. She battled hard, she got through Chemo and made a bit of a recovery. Sadly though, less than a year later the news came through that they had found evidence it was returning and a second round of Chemo would be needed.
So why Machu Pichu? Because i promised mumWhy raise money? Because i promised myself
I hope that in the next year and a bit to document my preparations for this journey on https://mariecurietrek.wordpress.com/ , hopefully raise money for Marie Curie, Gain insight from others on what i need to do to make sure i get there and if i can inspire others to help.For my beautiful mum and for everyone else whos been through this.
