Team story

[p][span=color: #333333; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica; font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px;]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. [/span][/p][p][span=color: #333333; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica; font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px;]We're taking on the mighty challenge of The Three Peaks. It involves climbing the three highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland, within 24 hours. We will be training for this hardcore hike over the next 6 months and will keep you posted with our progress. [/span][/p][p][span=color: #333333; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica; font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px;]Our inspiration for this is someone very close to our hearts, our good friend Claire Grant who is facing her own challenge every single day. [/span][/p][p][span=color: #333333; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica; font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px;]We are raising money for 2 specific charities whose research will help Claire and many others in the same situation. [/span][span=color: #333333; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica; font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px;]We appreciate every single penny that anyone can donate and thank you for taking the time to visit our page and show your support! We'll let Claire explain more in her own words:[/span][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 13px; line-height: 15.552000045776367px;"[gt]My name is Claire. I  was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer three years ago. Triple Negative Breast Cancer affects approximately 10-20% of all breast cancers and is a global problem, which affects around 150,000 new patients each year. Unlike other types of breast cancer, TNBC is unresponsive to standard hormone treatments. It is more likely to affect younger women and studies have shown it is more aggressive than other breast cancer sub types and five year survival rates are lower than any other form of breast cancer.[/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 13px; line-height: 15.552000045776367px;"[gt]July 2012 I was told that the cancer had spread to my lungs and that I have limited life expectancy. Pah! We will see.[/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 13px; line-height: 15.552000045776367px;"[gt]I have since then embarked on a massive plan of attack for not only myself but for any other 'survivors' out there. I have set up a website where I share my research as well as blog every day. Please take a look.. I promise it isn't all doom and gloom![/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 13px; line-height: 15.552000045776367px;"[gt]www.triplenegative.co.uk[/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 13px; line-height: 15.552000045776367px;"[gt][/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 13px; line-height: 15.552000045776367px;"[gt]Breakthrough Breast Cancer are currently helping fund a trial that is specifically targetted for Triple Negative Breast Cancer. [lt]br /[gt]The Cancer Vaccine Institute is trying to find a cure to cancer by using immunotherapy which I believe is the way forward in helping to find a cure for cancer.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]By donating will help thousands of women and one day a cure or at least a succesful treatment will be available to kick cancer in the butt! So come on dig deep and know that every penny goes to a great cause too close to many of our hearts... Thankyou![/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 13px; line-height: 15.552000045776367px;"[gt]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
