I am Taking It On this November
It is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and I am Taking It On.
I’m swimming 50 miles over the month of November. This means I’ll swim 4034 lengths during the month, which averages 134.4 a day! I’m doing this in memory of my beautiful Mum and my Nan who both died of Pancreatic Cancer. My Mum was my best friend and I miss her so very much every day.
Please give what you can to support me in Taking It On for pancreatic cancer.
By uniting together we can transform the future for all those affected by pancreatic cancer.
1 in 4 people won’t survive a month. 3 in 4 won’t survive for a year. This is an emergency. We need change, fast. It’s time to Take It On.
With your help we can ensure we fund research that will lead to earlier diagnosis and faster treatment, saving more lives.

Well I completed my final swim today. I've ended the month on 55.8 miles which is 4500 lengths. I managed to muster the energy to swim 150 lengths every day. I have to say I feel great but very tired now and rather emotional. Thank you for the donations and the lovely messages. I hope my Mum is watching from her special cloud and knows that all this is for her.
I’ve hit 50 miles!
Well I've only gone and done it! After my early morning swim today, I have hit 50.22 miles which is 4050 lengths! I'm going to keep going until Saturday so I will be lots over my goal. Thank you to all who sponsored me and supported me through this month. I've loved it.Share
Over half way!
So, after today's swim I'm on 31.62 miles which is 2550 lengths! Feeling good still although my left shoulder is a bit stiff and achey. Will power through it 😊.Share
Ten days in!!!
Well, after ten days of swimming 150 lengths each day, I'm on 1500 lengths which is 18 miles! I'm feeling good and will continue with 150 lengths if I can! Thank you so much to those who have donated already!
