To all my readers and visitors: I’m a breast cancer survivour raising vital funds for Cancer Research UK and would appreciate any help you can give – regardless of the amount or country, the results for all could mean the gift of life.

In aid of CR

Hi,  Can you donate a small amount and give whatever you can (even the price of a solitary cuppa) to Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Research?  In these devastating times, charities are being hit as hard as the next.  Work has to carry on behind the scenes.  Vital work.  As a breast cancer survivor, I can sincerely say that your help is more than appreciated.

Cancer Research is responsible for a high percentage of the major breakthroughs we have seen to date.  Without you and me, those breakthroughs will not happen.  Regardless of the amount or where you live in this world, your generosity will one day give the gift of life.

On the JustGiving page, you will find verification,  my story, reasons and action plan I’ve used and for the foreseeable future.  My crafts page has all my hand made/painted gift ides for sale.

Thank  you very much!

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.

  1. I prefer to donate to charities like The Doctor Hadwen Trust, or The Physician’s Committee for Safer Medicine, as they are working on developing cures for cancer using methods other than animal testing, which is a more direct way to save human lives. Cancer Research donate money for animal experiments which are very dangerous to humans, and slowing the progress of a cure.

    I hope this does not offend, as I have found this perspective often offends people. I just hate to see people generously giving to a cause which wastes people’s money. ❤

    1. I am not offended and we all have different perspectives on an issue. Yours however does seem to weigh heavily on misinformation – and wasting people’s money…in terms of direct benefits. One drug developed this way saved my life and countless others. There will always be a huge moral issue but I hope one day there will be enough funds to go around, discoveries made and laws changed, to provide us all with animal free testing/research. CRUK and many others adhere to strict guidelines and wherever possible, avoid using animal testing. It does not change the fact we do rely on a small percentage of animal testing (mice with a similar make up to our own, worms, insects) and that doesn’t always sit well, but there are over 400 deaths a day from cancer at present regardless of the approach. And it’s a legal requirement in this country that all new drugs (not just cancer drugs) are tested in animals before they’re given to patients, to make sure that they’re safe to use.
      Much of their work doesn’t involve animals, and wherever it’s possible researchers rely on other methods. Some use cells taken from human tumours, others study cell processes in yeast or bacteria, and some use computer models to study cancer.
      They’re also looking at entirely new approaches, such as ‘artificial tumours’ and lab grown tissue. When there is simply no other way, researchers follow strict laws that ensure animals are treated humanely and only used when there’s no alternative.
      As I say, the world isn’t perfect or fair. Thank you for you input.
