Mary Milne

I'm taking part in my 1st Big Step Forward!

Thank you so much!

We did it! We got going early and had five miles under our belts before it got too hot. Thanks to everyone who has sponsored me for whatever amount. It has added up to an absolutely amazing total which will help improve outcomes for people with pancreatic cancer.

Oh my goodness...

I'm number 5 on the leaderboard!

Thank you to all my sponsors for your extraordinary generosity!

Why I’m joining the Big Step Forward

I was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer in November 2020. 

You can read about my journey at https://walking-through-fire.blogspot.com/

I’m going to be walking five miles (which will be the furthest I’ve managed since before I started chemotherapy) to raise money for better outcomes for people with this disease.

Please sponsor me if you can. Thank you.

I’m fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer UK

Pancreatic cancer is a tough one. Tough to diagnose, tough to treat, and tough to survive. Together, we can change that.

I am taking part in The Big Step Forward to take steps to transform the future for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer. Please support me and my fundraising.

Research breakthroughs give us hope and will save lives. The funds I raise will have the power to make that possible. Every step will support world-class researchers to speed up diagnosis and improve treatments. By walking together, we can create change to save lives.
