Angela's travels with her tumour

Angela Rawsthorn

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving you can sponsor me  as I 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 have now taken my tumour on another adventure, a little closer to home this time. On 11th May 2015 I set out to walk the South West Coast Path - 630 miles & completed the walk on 25th July. The walk was stunning, hard in places, but a wonderful experience. Whilst walking I had hoped to raise funds for UCL Cancer Institute Research Trust & Chordoma UK & friends, family & complete strangers have been generous in their support.

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.

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
