There are so many causes that are close to my heart, and this walk isn’t just about raising money for charity. It’s about seizing the day and living life to the full. Not everyone can, and that’s why I want to raise awareness and money to support research into treatment for one particular type of cancer, one with the most life-limiting impact.
Pancreatic Cancer is often, still, one of the ‘diagnosed too late’ cancers and we really need to find a way to give people a chance of effective treatment and recovery. Earlier diagnosis is key to this. And that takes research.
So here’s the deal. If you want to show financial support for my walk go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/helegant-walks-lejog and send a few pounds in the direction of the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.
I raised money for them when my mother was terminally ill, and as Mum loved walking, exploring and adventures this seems like a good way to link to her. Thank you.
