We campaign, support and fund research to stop people dying of bowel cancer

Story

Our London based colleague, Greg Carrier was diagnosed with stage one bowel cancer in March 2021. Following surgery to remove the tumour in April 2021, Greg was given the diagnosis of accelerated stage 3 cancer which had spread further than originally thought. This subsequent diagnosis meant Greg had to undergo a gruelling series of chemotherapy, resulting in blood clots on his right lung (something for which Greg still has to take medication for). However, despite all this, we were delighted to welcome Greg back to work last October.

Greg and his family received vital support from Bowel Cancer UK following his diagnosis, and we at Quantuma collectively feel that it's our turn to give back to them, for the support and help they've given Greg, and more generally, the great work they do on a daily basis.

This year, we will, as an organisation be participating in various activities to raise money for Bowel Cancer UK. We have kick started the year with our Around the World in 30 days challenge, which will see everyone in the organisation running, cycling, walking, swimming and rowing 25,000 miles to raise funds.

Bowel Cancer UK fund targeted research, provide expert information and support to patients and their families, educate the public and professionals about the disease and campaign for early diagnosis and access to best treatment and care. Their aim is to stop people dying of bowel cancer.

Any donations you can make to this worthy cause would be gratefully received.

Many thanks,

From all at Team Quantuma :)

Team Quantuma: our events

Throughtout the year, different members of Team Quantuma will be participating in various events in collective support of Bowel Cancer UK.

You can read more about each of these events and support a specific event via the links below.

Nicola's Daily Dash

Nicola Davies took part in the December Daily Dash. She undertook the challenge of completing 5km a day, every day for the month of December.

As a keen runner this will be my 5th year of December Dashing and this year I would like to raise funds for Bowel Cancer UK. As some of you may know our colleague, Greg Carrier, was diagnosed with stage 3 Bowel Cancer in late March this year. Greg has had an operation to remove a tumour and undergone several rounds of chemotherapy. He is determined to raise awareness and funds for Bowel Cancer UK, a charity he and his family have been the beneficiaries of. I would love to use my Daily Dash to kick start our fundraising for this very worthy cause.

You can still donate to Nicola's Daily Dash challenge by following the link.
