As soon as you hear the word Cancer, you immediately think of death.
Although medical advances have been vastly improved and survival rates are on the up, the word 'Cancer' is still strong enough to instil a lot of fear in many people.
You can read all about the survival rates of Cancer here. But more needs to be done to beat this disease for good and that's why donating to Cancer Research is so important.
Over on Facebook, a campaign was started to share a #nomakeupselfie to raise awareness and to hopefully raise some much needed funds. No one knew how much this would take off until it went viral yesterday and has now raised over £1 million pounds. Source.
We all know somebody who has been affected by Cancer, so please please donate so we can kick Cancer's ass!!
Here's my donation.
You can donate online here. Alternatively, you can donate £3 by texting BEAT to 70099.
