As you may know, In 2007, we lost my elder sister, Jill, to bone cancer.  At the time, I wanted to do something to raise money for research, in her memory; but it never quite happened.  Then, in 2009, Mum was diagnosed with bowel cancer.  The whole family had a horrible sense of deja-vu - but I'm delighted to say, she bounced back and is still bouncing - at the age of eighty-four!  One reason she survived was improved diagnostic techniques thanks to research - so again I wanted to do something to help - this time to celebrate; but again, life got in the way.   Finally, a month ago, everything came together and I made up my mind:  Seven years ago, I shed three stone in weight - and since then I've been trying to get rid of the last unwanted stone - with varying degrees of lack of success!  So on the spur of the moment, I decided to turn the weight into cash for this cause about which I feel so passionately.  I set myself a target - fourteen pounds in fourteen weeks, finishing (coincidentally) on 14th August.  I have to say, I'm already nearly halfway there!  I also set myself a fundraising target - £200.00.  I'm nowhere near halfway towards that yet - but I'll get there - especially if you can help!  Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.  Thanks.  Sherie
