My story

[p]Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my Virgin Money Giving page,[/p][p]On Sunday 26th April 2020 I will be taking part in the London Marathon. I will be running [b]26.2 miles[/b] to raise money for 'The Ovarian Fund' through the Imperial College Health Charity.[/p][p]This is why . . .[/p][p]Most of you will know that Iā€™m a Doctor specialising in Obstetrics & Gynaecology. During my training I met Professor Christina Fotopoulou, an incredible woman and Gynaecology Cancer Surgeon, who inspired me to further specialise in Gynaecology Cancer. So, 18 months ago, with Prof's supervision and support, I paused my clinical training and started a 3 year PhD at Imperial College London, looking at Ovarian Cancer.[/p][p]Of the gynaecology cancers, Ovarian Cancer is responsible for causing the most deaths. It has a very low cure rate; despite most women responding well to their chemotherapy treatment initially, more than 80% will go on to relapse and develop resistance to treatment. There are currently no effective drugs available to overcome this.[/p][p]My research is looking at improving the understanding of the biology of the disease, and at discovering new treatment options. We hope that these new treatments will make women who have relapsed, begin to respond to their chemotherapy again, and so improve their survival.[/p][p]I am currently half-way through my research, and there is still so much to do! Your donations will go directly to our charity so that our team can continue to find new ways to fight this disease. [/p][p][b]Your contributions, together with the inspiration and strength that we get from our patients, will keep us going. [/b][/p][p]Thank you so much for your support![/p][p]Tasha[/p][p]x x x[/p][p][i]For more information on our charity 'The Ovarian Fund', and on what we do, please visit our website at:[/i][/p][p][i]http://www.imperialcharity.org.uk/donate/donate-to-an-appeal/the-ovarian-care-fund [/i][/p]
