It was so lovely to have the opportunity to speak about the importance of an early ovarian cancer diagnosis in Edinburgh tonight on behalf of Target Ovarian Cancer, at an event organised to raise money for this incredible charity.
I was invited to speak at the event by an incredible man named Michael who worked tirelessly to create a spectacular evening so that money could be raised in memory of his dear childhood friend Katie who sadly passed away at the age of 21 following an ovarian cancer diagnosis. Having met several of Katie’s friends this evening, and sharing the same oncologist, I can say with confidence that I believe she was a wonderful young woman full of positivity and love.
It is an honour to be able to raise awareness in her name so that more women can be diagnosed early and increase their chances of survival. How lovely and inspiring it is to see her loved ones create such positivity in her name.
Thank you to everyone involved for letting me be a part of your special evening. I was so deeply moved by your words and hugs and it was my utmost privilege to meet you all.
