      Extended Water Fast

    Our fundraising pages 1

    • karinnielsen

      Thanks for visiting my Just Giving page!

      I'm raising for Macmillan cancer who supported and cared for my amazing step dad Tim during the final stages of his battle with a rare form of lung cancer called Pancoast Syndrome.

      Learn more here: https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Pancoast_tumor

      The NHS and local authorities don't do enough to support cancer sufferers receiving palliative care, with many being sent home to unsuitable circumstances or having to worry about being re-homed so that they are closer to medical facilities, family and friends.

      Macmillan exists to support the people we love when they are at their most vulnerable, ensuring they are treated with respect and dignity where other services fail to deliver. 

      There is a high probability that you or someone you love will suffer from cancer at some stage, with 356,000 new cases reported every year. Those people are likely to come into contact with Macmillan.

      THE CHALLENGE

      I'm attempting to exceed my previous challenge of fasting for 12 consecutive days, consuming nothing but water while continuing to go about my daily life including work, socialising and exercise.

      This is a super difficult endeavour so please donate generously for this amazing cause :-)

      Q&A

      1) Is it safe?

      Yes. Most doctors agree that healthy humans can fast for up to 80 days. Jesus managed 40 so I should be fine ;-)

      2) Are you doing it for weight loss?

      No. There are many advantages to extended fasting and weight loss is just one of them. The most fascinating benefit is that there is mounting evidence that extended fasting stimulates stem cell regeneration of your organs and vital systems. Further, it regenerates and strengthens the immune system which has a direct impact for cancer sufferers and those receiving chemotherapy.

      3) Will you share the results?

      Yes. This time I'm creating a YouTube video to help inform others about what water fasting is really like (will share the link here once edited). 

      I have also taken a full set of blood tests prior to starting the fast and will take another when it ends. During the fast I am monitoring vitals with home testing kits and am also keeping a diary which will form part of my YouTube vid.

      Thanks for supporting me and Macmillan!
