As March marks ‘OVARIAN CANCER AWARENESS’ MONTH it brings about the focus to think about why 3 of Envy’s team member’s have signed up to CYCLE THAILAND IN 2020, raising money for Womenvcancer which supports three women’s cancer charities. Ovarian Cancer action. Breast Cancer Care and Jo’s Cervical Trust.
Being that is is ‘Ovarian Cancer Awareness’ month the link to the charity can be found here.
This Thailand trio made up of Zayli Gunningham (salon assistant) Tracie Gunningham (salon owner) and Lynda Penny (salon manager) have signed up to cycle 413 km from Bangkok to Ko Samui in October 2020.
In this picture one person has had Ovarian Cancer Stage 4 but thankfully has been 4 and half years clear, one person has had pre cancerous cells of the cervix and the youngest one has had relatives on both sides who has had a ‘women’s’ cancer.
It’s of no surprise that the recent family and friend losses, inspired each one of the girls to sign up, to raise much needed money to help fund research and also support women and their families that have the disease.
The statistics of ovarian cancer are scarily high.
IT KILLS 1 WOMAN EVERY 2 HRS IN THE UK,
90% OF WOMEN DON’T KNOW THE 4 SYMPTOMS-
STRUGGLING TO EAT,
BE AWARE- #ovaryact #ovarianaction.
