Team story

[p]We are raising money in memory of our beautiful Pearl, so that other families are not robbed of their ‘pearls’ by the terrible disease that is Ewing’s Sarcoma.[/p][p]Bibi (Pearl’s great aunt) and I (Pearl’s grandma) are taking our lives in our hands and flying down the fastest Zipwire in the world. It gets up to 100 miles per hour and since Bibi and I are now both 70 years young this is no mean feat!! The zipwire is located in North Wales and is the longest in Europe.[/p][p]Little is known or understood about Ewing’s and current treatment lags far behind other childhood cancers, so the current chances of cure are horribly slight especially when, as in Pearl’s case, the cancer stays hidden until it’s later stages.[/p][p]Treatment is gruelling: long, painful and exhausting, and the suffering to both child and family is traumatic.[/p][p]Pearl was an inspiration to all that met her. Kind, considerate, brave, creative, funny and so much wiser than her tender years. She was only ten when she died but has lived on in the hearts of many children and adults alike, inspiring them to make changes to their lives, live their dreams and work for good. By giving money to this fund you are helping frontline research into Ewing’s Sarcoma, to enable improvements to the existing treatment, earlier diagnosis and to explore new innovative approaches to cure.[/p][p]Our zipwire challenge will be terrifying but we are inspired by Pearl’s incredible courage in the face of her challenge. Please support us and make s donation today.[img][/img][/p]
