Our Stories

We are four friends from Kingsclere who have been personally affected by cancer in the last few years. Our stories are below. Please take a moment to to look at the video produced by Cancer Research UK and read the stories and you will understand why we are determined to increase awareness of this disease, which will leave almost no family untouched, and to raise funding into research to give more families the opportunity to survive and thrive

Mandy's Story

In June 2019, I was diagnosed with breast cancer after finding a lump in my breast. I had two operations to remove the tumour and was treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy afterwards. Throughout this period I was terrified and with three children ranging from two to fourteen, it was a worrying time for my family too. My husband was an absolute rock and supported us all as did our amazing friends and families too. During my treatment, I closely followed the amazing work that Cancer Research UK are doing and saw their progress with treatments is improving all the time. We want to raise as much money for this charity to ensure that there are more families out there who get a second chance like we have.

Beccy's Story

My family carry a faulty BRCA gene. When these genes work normally they help fight breast, ovarian and other cancer cells growing in an uncontrolled way. As mine is faulty I am at a huge risk to develop these cancers. We have lost family members because of this gene and one of my cousins, who I am extremely close to, has recently sadly been diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer. She is my inspiration - she faces regular treatment, some of it extremely gruelling, but I am thankful for her every day. Over the past year, I have been on my own journey due to my faulty BRCA gene, but thanks to an awesome medical team I know I am one of the lucky ones. My biggest fear is that my own children will carry this gene and face this risk. I can’t hope enough that diagnosis, treatment and cures for cancer are even better for their generation.

Claire's Story

I lost my friend Vicki to ovarian cancer in 2019. Not a day goes by when I don’t think of her and miss her. The last time I saw her before she passed away she urged me to go back to the GP to chase a diagnosis for the digestive pain I had been struggling to manage for several years. My own diagnosis of Stage 3 bowel cancer followed. Following surgery and chemotherapy in 2021 I am well, and keen to raise funds for the incredible scientists who are our best hope of stopping this disease in its tracks.

Allison's Story by Sean

Allison was formally diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer on 23 December 2020. During the preceding month or two, only some vague symptoms and blood tests indicated there may be some issues. Sadly, Allison died only 4 short weeks to the day after the diagnosis. She was 54 and had 3 children. As a family, we are determined that Allison’s legacy will be our inspiration to raise awareness and knowledge of the many forms of cancer; provide support for those affected; and increase funding into research and innovation. All of these will help in our aim to increase survival rates for all cancers, especially the terribly low rates for pancreatic cancer and other currently less-survivable forms of the disease.
