Angela's travels with her tumour.....

Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving you can sponsor me  as I attempt to walk the South West Coast Path.

In September 2013 I was diagnosed with a clival chordoma & following surgery I travelled to the USA to the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute, where I received Proton treatment, courtesy of our wonderful NHS.

I would now like to take my tumour on another adventure, a little closer to home this time. I will be attempting to walk the South West Coast Path - 630 miles, starting on 11th May, hopefully completing by the end of July. Whilst walking I hope to raise funds for UCL Cancer Institute Research Trust & Chordoma UK.

All donations will be quickly processed and passed to UCL. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on the charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.

How your donation is spent

There is little funding available for research into this relentless bone cancer mainly because it is relatively rare, occurring in only 1 in 800,000 of the population. Without a focused approach to raising money for research into chordoma, little will change quickly.
