Team Lydia 24 Hours Later

Tuesday 16th Feb
Wow! In less than 24 hours, #TeamLydia has raised £110 of our £500 target! I’m bowled over! Thank you! 

If you think you’re able to sponsor us, or if you’d like to join in and use Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month (March) as the motivation to take 295,000 steps during/post-Lockdown, please go to: join.ovarian.org.uk/join/TeamLydia.

You don’t have to be a fitness freak, you don’t even have to do your steps every day; you can walk, run, jump, cycle, whatever! You don’t have to have known my Mum, you don’t have to any connection to ovarian cancer; you don’t have to be a woman, you just have to want to give women everywhere a better chance of surviving this horrible disease. 

🤍

Thank you!

Team Lydia

Monday 15th Feb

Every year, 295,000 women around the world are diagnosed with ovarian cancer; only half that number survive more than 5 years.

Those of you that know my Mum’s story will know that, a few days after she turned 56, completely out of the blue, she was diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer, and she died only months later. And that’s not fair. Not even slightly. 

As it stands, there is no decent test for ovarian cancer; there’s *nothing* in the way of a screening programme and even if, like my sister and I, you have a family history of ovarian cancer, you won’t be on an oncology department’s radar unless you elect to have preventative surgery. 

Because of this ovarian cancers are often left undetected, they metastasise, and by then it’s too late. Fundraising could change that. 

Please support #TEAMLYDIA! 

Thank you!

Susan Wilkinson

Hi Issy, I have just read your story and was so shocked to hear firstly that your Mum's ovaries weren't removed as agreed and then secondly that her symptoms were ignored. I can't imagine how horrified you all were to hear her diagnosis. There definitely needs to be better understanding of the symptoms and a screening tool for early diagnosis. So sorry for your loss! Good luck with your challenge, your Mum would be so proud.
