I am taking part in the Walk in Her Name Step Challenge in aid of Ovarian Cancer Action in memory of my sister Sarah.

Wednesday 24th Feb
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 just three months. Approximately half of these 295,000 women will not survive beyond five years. Sarah was one of them. She lived for just two and a half years after her diagnosis, passing away in December 2017. We love her and miss her so much, and we will never forget her.

Together with five of Sarah's friends - Kate, Katie, Abi, Lee Ann and Lizzie - I am part of Team Sparkle (so named because Sarah loved a bit of sparkle!).

To mark Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in March, each of us in Team Sparkle are taking 295,000 steps during 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 so we can each rack up the requisite 295,000 steps needed and raise money to help fund this critical scientific research. 

I am hoping that my dodgy knees hold out, but Mark has promised to make up any missing steps for me!

Thank you for any support you can give.
