I have been Chief Executive of World Child Cancer for the past two years - the best job I have ever had!
So this is my first significant personal fundraising effort - I am looking forward (I think!) to the challenge, but I need your support! And please circulate this through your network.
Having a child with cancer is a terrifying thing for parents anywhere, but in developing countries with no health service and everything having to be paid for it is an enormous burden for the parents and for the child.
What I have learnt is that most children can survive - if there are well trained medics, and help with the costs of drugs and travel (often huge journeys) and with finding somewhere local for the parents to stay so they dont have to sleep in car parks.
I will pay for the trek so ALL the money you give will go to World Child Cancer. Thank you
