Team Sparkle

Five Friends and a Sister are taking part in the Walk in Her Name Step Challenge in aid of Ovarian Cancer Action in memory of our friend and sister, Sarah Emly

In memory of our friend and sister Sarah Emly; Kate, Katie, Lee Ann, Abi, Lizzie and Sarah's sister Gillian are taking part in the "Walk in Her Name" Step Challenge in aid of Ovarian Cancer Action this March.

Every year, 295,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer globally. In 2015 Sarah was one of them. She was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer aged just 41, having suffered vague gastro-intestinal symptoms for only three months. Approximately half of these 295,000 women will not survive beyond five years. Sarah was one of them. She lived for just 2.5 years after her diagnosis, passing away in December 2017. We love her and miss her so much, but we shall never forget her.

March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and the five of us in Team Sparkle (so named because Sarah loved a bit of sparkle) are each taking 295,000 steps throughout the month to raise funds for life-saving research into ovarian cancer that will help these women, and the next generation, to survive this disease.

Please help motivate us to brave the March weather in London, Surrey, Devon and Scotland so we can each rack up the requisite 295,000 steps needed and raise £295 each (or £1475 as Team Sparkle) in order to help fund this critical scientific research.
