My story

[p]My best friend and brother-in-law have both had severe cancer one diagnosed as terminal. And my cousin has also been just been diagnosed with cancer. [/p][p]If it hadn’t been for Cancer Research my brother-in-law nor best friend would be alive and well today. I’ve also had experience of people close to me suffering with mental health issues and I’m passionate about both the right to education and equal treatment of all, as I am about the environment and preserving our planet. This is why I’m going to be helping my company Hyperion’s initiative to raise money for the below detailed four charities it supports as part of its 25th year anniversary. [/p][p]On 19th November, I will be taking part in a seven day trek through the Simien Mountains in Ethiopia. It will consist of walking approximately 8-9 hours per day with the highest mountain being Was Dashen at 4440m and camping every night (Eeek!). I am doing this to support the causes we all at Hyperion feel strongly about and I know that any donation would be more than appreciated by each charity. [/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and for any support you can kindly[i] [/i]give.[i] [/i][/p][p][i]Louise[/i][/p][p]UK - Cancer Research UK - [url=https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/]https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/[/url] [/p][p]One of the deadliest diseases in the world, cancer claims thousands and thousands of lives every year and the battle has only just begun![/p][p]AUS - The Black Dog Institute (Mental Health) - [url=https://www.blackdoginstitute.org.au/]https://www.blackdoginstitute.org.au/[/url][/p][p]There has never been a more open and honest culture surrounding mental health as the present day, yet still it is seen as such a taboo subject. Visit the Black Dog Institue's website to see the incredible work this charity is doing surrounding mental health in Australia and all over the world.[/p][p]SPN - InteRed - [url=https://www.intered.org/]https://www.intered.org/[/url][/p][p]A wonderful charity working throughout Spain and some central and southern American countries. InteRed are striving to help the disadvantaged benefit from education in order to increase the participation of all people in favor of justice, gender equality and social and environmental sustainability.[/p][p]World - Plastic Oceans - [url=https://plasticoceans.org/]https://plasticoceans.org/[/url][/p][p]Following the ground-breaking Blue Planet 2 series, it has become more prominent than ever just how poorly we, as the human race, have treated our oceans with the disposal of Plastic waste. Plastic Oceans is an international charity striving to raise awareness of what must be done to reverse years of ignorance.[/p][p] [i] [/i][/p][p] [/p][p] [/p]
