Stand up to Cancer
Tonight Channel 4 are hosting a night that their week of campaigning has built up to. For those of you that haven’t seen it, Channel 4 has teamed up with Cancer Research UK to fundraise and help to bring us closer to curing cancer.
I’ve decided to donate all my royalties from today’s e-book sales to Stand up to Cancer. That means for every book I sell on Amazon I will donate just over £1 to the charity. So why not download my book today, not only do you get a light-hearted read but you’re also doing a good deed. You can buy Universally Challenged or Millie and the American Wedding.
Why am I doing it?
Just the advert on TV got to me; it listed the odds of becoming an astronaut, getting stuck in a lift, and tripping whilst texting. The last statistic with the most unbelievable odds is then displayed: one person in three would get cancer. Which means that most people would have been touched by someone that has had cancer.
I lost my granddad to cancer eleven years ago. Watching someone you love being attacked by cancer is one of the worst things you can go through. It is something that never goes away. If there is a chance that we can do something to bring an end to that pain then it has to be worth a shot.
