Cancer Doesn’t Discriminate
Cancer can affect anyone, any gender, age, religion or sexuality. It can come in many forms and affect many lives. Cancer Research UK is an organisation who have a vision that one day all cancers will be cured, no one will continue to live in pain or suffering.
The last 40 years.
Cancer Research UK are researching new methods and diagnosis with survival rates changing all the time. Cancer Research UK is aiming to bring more awareness and help to those who need it and those around them.
Gone Far too Soon
Cancer affects everyone, those who have the disease, their loved ones, family, and friends. Losing my uncle and godfather back in December 2017 affected me greatly. I didn’t have regular contact with him, losing him at the age of 65 was far too young especially when he had so much of his life yet to live. One of the positive outcomes of this tragedy was the reconnection with my cousin (his daughter). After discussions with my husband on this subject, we decided to raise money and awareness for this marvelous Cancer charity. We cannot bring our loved ones back we can support the work this charity does. The aim is to help them to help others who are at present fighting this disease.
