When I was going for my radiotherapy at Jimmy's in Leeds my Dad picked up a leaflet for the 3 Volcano Trek in Italy, to raise funds for Yorkshire Cancer Centre, based at Jimmy's.
"You should do this" he said.
My initial reaction was to laugh,
then I thought, yeah, why not? what's stopping me?
I've been looked after by the most wonderful nurses... with halo's and wings, and amazing Doctors with fabulous skills and knowledge to guide me through my cancer journey and now the big treatments finished, what next?
I want to give something back and carry on fighting and help others who's outcomes aren't as positive as mine.
I'm only going to trek up 3 volcano's!!
Vesuvius, Stromboli and Mount Etna!
can you believe it!!
eeeee bit giddy!
So today I started my training, Oh yes watch out Etna!
I walked up and down the Holme Valley for two and a half hours, fab! (notice the eyebrows are coming back! yay! come on eyelashes don't let the brows beat you into luscious loveliness!!)
I'm nervous and giddy about the whole thing,
fundraising is new to me,
I love organising nights out for friends and kids but this is a whole new ball game!
So, I'll map out my creative fundraising on here so you can see how I do,
I'd love any ideas and suggestions you have to help me reach my target, you've all been so ace at supporting me:)
To start with,
all money made from my Free Spirit screen print will go towards my 3 Volcano's Trek, challenge cancer funds,
I plan to do another screen print and a card too, any suggestions of subject matter would be very gratefully received :)
Also I have set up a JustGiving page with more info on and where donations can be made,
no matter how small all donations are received gratefully:)
Wooo! I've done it! I've taken on the challenge!
let's kick some more cancer bottom!
