My Personal Fundraising Page

I have lost an incredible number of people close to me to cancer. My father, my grandmother, one uncle and three aunts. Another aunt is a breast cancer survivor. I am “buzzing “ not just to honor their memory, but more importantly to celebrate to a brighter future when cancer can be eliminated.

One of my best friends is currently fighting glioblastoma, a particularly deadly form of brain cancer. She has been undergoing experimental treatments which I have given her hope that would never have been possible even a few years ago.  She is why I am “buzzing “.   It is this kind of incredible advance, making cancers that were previously unsurvivable something that can be defeated, that shows how very vital research really is.

So, for my friend, for all of my family, and for so many who are fighting bravely against cancer, this is a tiny way for me to say:   “I love you, I will fight with you, and we will defeat this together”.
