Linda's Walking Together for Karl

15/09/2018 Linda Studd

In March this year I lost my beautiful little brother, Karl, to bowel cancer. He was just 30 years old and less than a year into married life, with a whole future and a world of dreams ahead of him.

Bowel Cancer is so treatable if caught early, yet so many people, like Karl, aren't diagnosed until it's far too late. Bowel Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer work tirelessly to research bowel cancer in the young and to campaign for earlier screening for this terrible disease. Both charities have helped and supported me so much these last few months and this is my chance to give something back. Please help if you can.

There's still six weeks to go and I've already raised so much more than I thought I would. And the best news of all is than since Karl passed away, we've now raised more than £3,500 in his name for Bowel Cancer UK through his Star of Hope page. I can't even start to thank you enough and I know that Karl would have been incredibly touched by all the love and generosity in his name x

Wow, hit and exceeded my target already! Don't know what to say, thank you everyone! Someone told me a while back when I was at my lowest ebb that I don't realise how much people care about me and how much they're looking out for me, even when I don't realise it and I guess this is a bit of an eye opener. There really is nothing I can do to change my story, or Karl's, but raising money for Bowel Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer gives me a little bit of comfort that I might be changing someone else's. Let's reach for the stars!
