Paulette Sedgwick From Tamworth Raising Money For Breast Cancer

Feb 15, 2011 by francesca

Paulette Sedgwick, popular online blogger from Tamworth, has entered this years Race For Life 2011. Every pound she will raise in sponsorship for her Race For Life 2011 event will help Cancer Reasearch UK.

Did you know that 80p in every pound Paulette raises from you sponsoring her event goes directly towards the work to beat cancer? Here are some examples of how your contribution – big or small – can help:

£10 could buy 300 glass slides for studying cells and tumour samples in detail under the microscope.

£30 could buy around 250 plastic Petri dishes. They’re an essential resource for thousands of scientists who are working hard to understand cancer.

£54 could buy 22 thermometers (range -10°C to 110°C) – indispensable for many experiments that need to be performed at very precise temperatures.

£94 could cover the cost for one woman to take part in a clinical trial aiming to improve survival for post-menopausal women with early stage of breast cancer.

£123 could fund one cancer information nurse for a day. There experienced cancer information nurses provide a confidential service for anyone with concerns about cancer.

£260 could buy a sophisticated microarray, a powerful piece of technology, helping scientists to scrutinise thousands of genes in a single experiment, and identify which are switched on in cancer.

£677 could cover the cost of one person taking part in a clinical trial testing chemotherapy before and after surgery, and the antibody drug Vectibix, to improve survival for bowel cancer patients.

£1,000 could cover around 22 day’s running expenses for an important lab project into a type of children’s cancer called ”Rhabdomyosarcoma”. The study aims to identify molecules that are involved in driving tumour growth, and this could lead to improved treatments so that more children survive the disease in the future.
