Liane Cope vs Cancer
Some of you may know me and my story, but for you who don't here is a brief outline.
Four years ago I discovered I had breast cancer, and so did two other friends. This terrible disease does not just affect you - but your family and friends too! So having support helps us all through the dark days.
Now after three ops and a long treatment period I feel I need to give something back by raising money for cancer charities.
To do this I have produced a T-shirt design, which I hope you will purchase for yourself or as a gift for someone you love.
The design 'cats' was drawn by my talented daughter as a present for me whilst I was going through the treatment and this cheered me up enormously. Now here's my chance to share it with you. She has kindly drawn a 'dogs' design recently for those of you that love dogs.
A local printing company are kindly printing the T-shirts at cost, so for every one sold £9 will go straight to the following cancer charities: Breast Cancer Care, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust. (Registered charity number 268369)
So please help me help others fighting cancer!
Challenge Liane 2017!
In 2017 my challenge: is to cycle 350km in just five days travelling along tropical coastline and through parts of the Atlantic rainforest of Brazil. It is the Woman v Cancer cycle ride and is organised by Action for Charity, (Registered charity number 268369) which takes place on the 9th to the 19th of October 2017.
Why am I doing it: Well I'm into my 4th year of remission and last year I went through breast reconstruction. Now back onto my feet again I feel it is time to let go of the past and look to the future. My aim is to get my fitness back and at the same time give something back to the charities that so helped me through those dark days. I tell my children that life is all about learning and new chapters and opportunities, and this is mine.
Which Charities will benefit: Three charities working to fight breast, ovarian and cervical cancers: Breast Cancer Care, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust.
How can you help: I am paying for my costs, but wish to raise at least £1,700 for the Charities.
