My Activity Tracking
My target 24 miles
💜In memory of my beloved dad - Robert 💜
💜My beloved dad diagnosed with incurable Pancreatic Cancer in December 2018, since then our lives have been turned upside down.
I spent 13 months fighting to try and save his life, despite knowing that whatever I did would likely not be good enough.
As well as fighting for my dad in the past, I want to fight for other Pancreatic Cancer patients, past, present and future. Below is why.
Pancreatic cancer is the deadliest and least survivable cancer of all common cancers.
Not only is it the least survivable, but over the last decade, Pancreatic Cancer UK has only received 1% of the government's entire cancer research budget, making it one of the least funded cancer charities.
1 in 4 people die within 4 weeks of diagnosis, 3 in 4 people won’t make it past a year. The 5 year survival rate in the UK is less than just 7%, stats like this haven’t changed or improved for 40 years due to lack of funding.
People like my dad had the odds stacked against them from day 1. Like my dad, many others are put onto palliative care at the first consultation. THIS IS NOT FINE and needs to CHANGE!
Things need to change and I need your help.
November is Pancreatic Cancer month, so in November I am going to challenge myself to run 24 miles over the first 24 days of the month.
💜I DO NOT like running, so I am DELIBERATELY choosing this challenge to add more 'MEANING' to it (if the pancreatic cancer patients can undergo grueling treatment then I can run a mile per day at least)! 💜
Please sponsor me, your support really means a lot.
If you’ve read this far, please take 5 minutes to research Pancreatic Cancer symptoms. If you had backache or nausea for a couple of months would you ever consider that there is a tumor in your pancreas? I definitely wouldn’t, and this is why GP’s often misdiagnose their patients with less serious conditions. By the time a correct diagnosis is made, it’s often too late. Please pass the message on.
💜Please support PAN CAN UK today - every penny counts!
Together we can make a difference and fund world-leading research to find that breakthrough in new treatments and improve the speed of diagnosis.
Pancreatic cancer is tough but together, we’ll Take It On.💜

Day 12- 07/11/2020OH how I felt lazy today in spite of the glorious weather....Having cleaned the house, washed one window, and used the warm weather for that was like a drained battery, yet went for a late afternoon run! NEVER GIVE UP!
Day 11- 06/11/2020Lovely sunny yet chilly Friday. I run with Luna at the lunch break. I also achieved 50% of my running target but still need £59 to achieve my fundraising target :-) Therefore any support encouraged. Together we can help Pan can patients. 💜
Day 9 - 04/11/2020
Day 8- 02/11/2020
Day 7- 31/10/2020
Day 5- 29/10/2020I thought I won't run today as somehow I used my lunch break for cooking not my usual run...
Day 4 - 28/10/2020What a lovely day. Loads. or
🌞I did 3km yesterday in a drizzle but decided to do just 1 mile today...as I am ahead of my miles target but weirdly enough I felt that this is how much I want to run today. No logic to it I know..But I felt so motivated by all the DONATIONS made yesterday it must have changed meintoDURACELL EXTRA POWER and today the sun is out but I am not as high;-( !
Day 3 - 27/10/2020
Day 226/10/2020 Another sunny day in Kent, so I ran with Luna during my lunch break --> I am not a morning person at all so midday works best if no commitments at work. Fight, Hope & Love- ALWAYS <3
Day 1My life has changed forever on 2.12.18 and since then I will never stop caring about research for pan can. I started the challenge today -25/10/20 as aware that now we will get more rainy than sunny days. I also want to complete the challenge on 19.11.20 which is World PanCan Day. Wish me luck as I hate running.. But hey I hated more to see what PanCan does to my no1 so that's the least I can do now! Fight, hope and love - always! TOGETHER WE CAN💪 💜
