We fund sarcoma research and offer support to ensure patients get the care they need.


Five years ago I was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma. Over the course of ten months, I had eleven rounds of chemo and my femur was removed and replaced. Without the extraordinary dedication of the NHS teams at UCL, The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital at Stanmore and The Royal Marsden hospitals, I wouldn't be alive, mobile and thriving. I am grateful every day.

I am now a full-time author of psychological thrillers and my books have been read by many thousands of people around the world. 

I am running a raffle to give someone the opportunity to name a character in my next stand-alone psychological thriller novel. The winner can choose a goodie or a baddie! It is not necessary to donate in order to enter the raffle, but I am hoping that you will. For every person who donates, I will match their donation. Yes, this could cost me a lot of money. I really hope it does because it is worth every penny.

How to enter the raffle:

  • If you donate here, you'll be automatically entered! (if you leave your name as anonymous, please email me at miranda@mirandarijks.com otherwise I won't be able to add you!)
  • If you want to enter without donating, head over to https://www.facebook.com/MirandaRijksAuthor or https://www.instagram.com/mirandarijksauthor and repost in your feed or story. 
  • I will select a winner via a random generator app on 21st August which was the day I was diagnosed five years ago. 

Sarcoma UK is a national charity that funds vital research, offers support for anyone affected by sarcoma cancer and campaigns for better treatments. Sarcoma is a type of cancer that develops in the bone and soft tissue. It is difficult diagnose and one of the hardest to treat. By supporting me, we can help change this. Your donation will help researchers find answers, keep Sarcoma UK's Support Line open, and raise awareness to improve treatment and standards of care.Thank you for your support.
