THE GLOVES ARE ON.
LOTTIE’S SHOWING CANCER
Lottie’s dad sadly lost his fight against cancer, but now Lottie is working to kick cancer where it hurts.
Lottie, 23, joined the rebellion against cancer when she saw her dad receive treatment as part of a clinical trial. Studying neuroscience at the time, she made the decision to move into cancer research. The money you raise will help fund clinical trials and super-scientists working on new treatments and cures. “I think about Dad a lot when I am doing extra work or staying up to finish projects. I think about him and other people’s dads – hopefully we can help them.”
OLIVER’S SHOWN CANCER
WHAT HE’S MADE OF.
Father-of-one Oliver, 53, was diagnosed with mouth cancer in 2009 after spotting a lump in his neck under his jaw. Oliver took part in a Cancer Research UK clinical trial that used targeted radiotherapy to treat his cancer. He’s taken on cancer and shown it what he’s made of.
“I Stand Up To Cancer for me and the other people I saw during treatment. Those people on the wards – they inspire me. Young, old, everyone. We all need to rebel against cancer.”
CANCER'S TIME IS UP.
Rochelle, 27, and her sisters have lost both their parents to cancer. Her dad died of pancreatic cancer when she was just 14 and her mum was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour when she was 25. She moved back home to look after her mum and her two younger sisters until her mum’s death in 2012.
“I think that cancer is something that can be stopped – we have the potential to stop it. If everyone comes together and lends their support, you can stop people going through what we went through.”
LAUREL STANDS UP TO CANCER.
After experiencing difficulty swallowing, mum-of-three Laurel, 60, was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer.
“It was a shock and the treatment was tough but I’m a different woman since I had cancer. I’m a million times more positive. I see the best in everything and I love life. I Stand Up To Cancer on a daily basis.”
Laurel’s daughter Kelly says “I am so grateful mum is still here – she is an inspiration. Every mother’s day, birthday or Christmas is so special. It had been such a difficult time for all of us and we had all been there together. Everyone should support Stand Up To Cancer as it’s helping families like ours.”
