Just Giving Award Nomination

If you have a spare minute I’d really appreciate you taking the time to nominate me for a justgiving award… 

Step One – Click on the link.

Step Two – in the nomination box add ‘Fi-Munro’
Step Three – add the reason for your nomination ūüíēūü¶Ą

Not because I think I’ve raised more than hundreds if not thousands of other people but because I think it would be another wonderful (and essential) way to raise awareness of ovarian cancer.

To date I have raised nearly £5500 for Macmillan.

My friends have collectively raised over £5000 for cancer research off the back of my diagnosis.

My sister and her friends have raised over £1000 for Target Ovarian Cancer Research.

That is an incredible ¬£11000 from just one cancer diagnosis! And that’s in just 6 months! Now that’s pretty exciting don’t you think?!

As I always say…if just one woman lives because of my diagnosis then it’s all been worthwhile. Please spare a minute and help me achieve this aim.

Let’s give ovarian cancer the airspace and awareness it deserves.

If you don’t do it for me…do it for the mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and grandmothers in your life.

Thank you!

Love and light, Fi xxx

Every year, 7,000 women in the UK are diagnosed, and 4,300 women die of ovarian cancer – that’s 12 women every day. Do you know the symptoms? Take a look at Fi’s fundraising page and find out more –¬†http://just.ly/support-Fi

When life gives you lemons…

So I’m always of the opinion that “when life gives¬†you lemons, make lemonade” and I wasn’t going to let something silly like a cancer diagnosis change my opinion on this so, when I got diagnosed I made the decision that I wanted as much positivity to come from my journey as possible.

when-life-gives-you-lemons-224454_w1000As well as sharing my story on social media I also set up a ‘Justgiving page’ to raise money for Macmillan Nurses and invited friends and family to¬†donate to this wonderful charity that, in just a short while, had made our journey so much smoother already. Amazingly in just 24 hours they had donated nearly ¬£15000!!! Isn’t that mind blowingly¬†awesome! I can honestly say that the love I felt¬†from every one of those donations and the lovely comments people left will give me the strength I need to make it through my journey!

I will continue to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support throughout my journey and always so that together we can help them to continue in their pledge to ensure that no one faces cancer alone.

I have also made my own pledge to cut all of my hair off before I start my chemo so that it can be donated to be made into a wig by the Little Princess Trust for a young child facing cancer and to dye my remaining hair pink until it falls out as a result of chemo. I invited others to do this too and was amazed to receive messages from people that they would be donating their hair to this amazing cause. My heart honestly sings for people like this!

Other people also offered to dye their hair pink too Рincluding my mum and dad! Support like this is priceless and I feel like the luckiest person alive knowing I have so many awesome, positive people cheering me on from the sidelines.

I also have friends and family signing up for the race for life and the overrun ovarian cancer run and I plan to join them all Рwalking, or crawling, if I have to!

I cannot put into words how grateful I am or how loved I feel but want everyone to know that I have never felt so blessed. Thank you.
