On Saturday 12th August, me, my friends and family will be completing a 20 mile walk from Whitby to Saltburn to raise money for Ovacome - a charity very close to my heart.

In March 2023, I was diagnosed with low-grade ovarian cancer which is unfortunately incureable. I am currently receiving chemotherapy treatment which is due to end on 4th August.

Ovacome provides life-changing information and support to woman living with ovarian cancer and is constantly working to raise awareness about the often-misinterpreted signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, for which there is no screening test. This is absolutely vital to me as hopefully this can give me as much time as possible with my lovely friends, family, partner Jonny and my 2 year old son Jesse.

No-one ever wants to be in this position and it breaks my heart that we are all going through it. If love could save me, I’d be here forever. So please, donate what you can. Share this story with your friends, families, colleagues or anyone who may wish to donate.

I am absolutely overwhelmed with the support and would like to thank the below people for agreeing to do the walk;

Jonny Hendry, Janet Gartland, Sarah Gartland, Lauren Walker, Michael Potter, Lucy Walker, Michael Dalton, Amy Cook, Danielle Ellsbury, Katie Brewster, Hayley Ogden, Kelvin Ogden, Hayley Vallily, Jade Phillips, Tom Phillips, Megan Lillie, Jodie Meggison, Chloe Meggison, Paul Jack, Charlie Roberts, Jannine Davison, Nick Davison, Gemma Butters, Vicky McCarthy, Ashleigh Fawcett, Sue Morgan, Fran Capaldi-Round, Rachel Rance, Julie Dalton, Jenna Tempest, Michael Temple, Natalie Wrench, Gemma Richardson, Abby Lewis, Lizzie Burdett, Grace Kane, Linda Smith, Chloe Tempestoso, Holly Kell, Hayley Murphy, Faye Johnson, Ellis Johnson, Ashleigh Byrne, Melanie Smith, Helen Walker, Sarah Rose, Karen Selby, Ste Selby, Rachel Selby, Liam Bennett, Katie Tranter, Adam Malcom, Amy Yalcin, Sam Relph, Linda Arnold, Sarah Walton, Carol Weightman, Carol Thrower, Amanda Stevenson, Kate Thrower, Lauren McCullow, Ema Stainthorpe, Jordan Little, Ashleigh Ward, Mark Ward, Michelle Penketh, Stacey Haggath, Laura Bailey, Chris Davies, Kate, Michelle Waugh, Catherine Styan, Gary Wood, Julie Wood, Catherine Lincoln, Joe Morgan, Tracy Greeves, Di Ward, Hannah Walker, Jay Walker, Rosie McGee, Vicky Graham, Kristina Dasey, Abigail Boyes, Zoe Parsons, Sophie Proud, Gail Wood, Kev Potter, Louise Hoe, Jane Wales, Lucie Allen, Mat Waters, Howard Warburton, Fay Gent, Louis Birch, Elle Fishlock, Dan Blackmore, Rebecca Cosgrove, Jonny, Becky O’Hare, Jonny Strathern, Peter Britton, Liam Lawlor, Dave Walker, Omar, Jenny Fleming & Jade Hughes.

Ovacome provides a range of support services for those affected by ovarian cancer. This includes the family and friends of those diagnosed, as well as those who might be at higher risk of the disease because of their family history. Ovacome also work closely with doctors and other clinicians to ensure that those diagnosed are given the most up-to-date information to help them navigate their treatment.
Every donation to Ovacome goes towards creating new services to support all those affected by this less common cancer. Any amount that feel able to give could make a huge difference to life of someone going through diagnosis and treatment at the moment.
It would mean a lot to me if you could share this fundraising page with your friends and family, as well as on your social media.
I want to support Ovacome to do more for those affected by this disease, but I need your help to do so.
Thank you!

Emma Walker
