Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

We both have close ones who are either fighting this horrible disease or have fought through and have the all clear. We have also lost some close ones due to cancer. We would love to raise money and do our bit for this charity. Any donation will make a difference and would be very much appreciated! 

Lucy: My Grandad sadly passed away in August 2014 from this horrible disease. He had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and had suffered from this since the day he was diagnosed. A few years later, he was diagnosed with leukemia. It was heart breaking to see someone in so much pain and for them not to have anything to stop it. Since I became aware of this and knew what my granddad  was going through, I really wanted to do my part to help people who are going through this. I would love to raise money for this amazing charity and show my support. I'm really nervous to be shaving my hair off, but I know its for a great cause! I hope to raise some awareness for Cancer Research as well as raise money to hopefully one day find a cure. Thank you to everyone who donates, it really is appreciated by me and Catherine. And also all the people who suffer from this disease and families who have/have lost members with cancer will very much appreciate it!

Catherine: I have lost family and friends due to this horrific disease, and I have also wanted to do my bit to raise awareness for this great charity. Thanks to all the research being done, many more people who are living with cancer are still with us today which is amazing. When Lucy asked me to join her in shaving our heads I didn't hesitate whatsoever. I am also nervous but also excited to be shaving my head. Again, it is for a great cause and hopefully one day we can say this disease will be a thing of the past. Any donations is much appreciated by both Lucy and I, thank you!
