Taking on my Dad's killer

By Lauren Smith

I am fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer UK.

Pancreatic cancer is tough to diagnose, tough to treat and tough to research. Please support me and help make a difference to pancreatic cancer. Every 1 in 2 people will experience cancer in their lifetime no one is immune and no one can hide from this disease.

I'm raising money to take on my dad's killer in the hope that one day it will never take a life again.

I will be walking 50 km in 12 hours on the 19th of June 2021 in the Peak District to fundraise for pancreatic cancer UK. Every 1 km I walk will symbolise a year of my dad's life before he was diagnosed with pancreatic and liver cancer. He died within 5 months of his diagnosis. At 50 years old he had many years left to live and due to that I'd like to fight for more years for everyone that ever has to face pancreatic cancer. 

I had just turned 14 years old when my dad was taken from our family and so now at 19 I will be walking for every child who ever has to face what I did in the hope that what I raise will give them the chance to keep what I lost. I will be walking for everyone effected by this disease, and everyone that will be effected by it. 

I hope to see a world without pancreatic cancer.

Location change

I have decided to take this closer to home and rather than carry out my walk in the peak district I will be doing it locally in Lincolnshire. I will take a route from my home to Hubbards Hills in Louth and back home again. Hubbards hills is a place close to my heart and one of my dad's favourite local places.
