HARRIETT COMPLETES CANCER RESEARCH RACE FOR LIFE
A huge well done to Harriett Wilson, in Year 9, who recently completed the Race for Life, and in doing so raised £65 for Cancer Research. Harriett was inspired to take part after Karen, a dear family friend, was diagnosed for the second time with ovarian cancer. Karen was first diagnosed two years ago and underwent chemotherapy which was successful. She has been cancer-free until January this year when unfortunately the cancer returned and she is now undergoing further treatment.
Despite this, Karen was determined to do the run and was over the moon when Harriett said she would join her.
Harriett said: “Karen wants to make more people aware of ovarian cancer and if she helps one person catch the disease early then she feels she has got her message out.”
We are so proud of Harriett who is such an amazing community champion and always thinks of others before herself. In the last couple of years, she has raised money for a host of charities as well as organising a litter pick in her village.
You can find out more about ovarian cancer from Target Ovarian Cancer, the UK’s leading ovarian cancer charity, working to improve early diagnosis, fund research and provide support – please visit their website.
