Children with Cancer UK ...


Everybody has a charity that is close to their heart, and mines Children with Cancer UK, along with a couple of other cancer charities. You find that the reason a charity is close to your heart is because you have somehow been effected by the cause, whether it be you personally or a family member or friend! Children with Cancer UK is a charity close to my heart because nearly 9 years ago back in 2006, I lost a very close friend, at 15 years old he lost his battle with a brain tumour! Andrew had been a friend of mine since we were babies, and loosing him really changed the way I thought about life! From the day he lost his battle I reassured myself that my way of dealing with the loss would be too make sure I continued to do things that would make him proud of me, and to continue to raise awareness of children with cancer! Children who are losing their fight to cancer, aren't having chance to live the life they deserve, theirs are getting cut short way too early! I'm all about making sure they get the chance to live their life to the full while they have chance! 

Children with Cancer UK fund research and campaign for more awareness for the charity, they fund work that goes on in different hospitals and hospices and mainly Great Ormond Street Hospital. They run many fundraising events to raise more money! They fund help for the families of children suffering with cancer. 

This year I'm running the Great North Run 2015 to raise money for Children with Cancer UK! If anyone would like to sponsor me please visit my just giving page!
