  • My Story

My own sister was diagnosed with Germ Cell Ovarian Cancer at the young age of 35.  She is one of the lucky ones becuase due to early detection, she has managed to make a recovery.  Many are not as fortunate, but this does not always have to be the case.

My sister is now an Ambassador for The Robin Cancer Trust, the UK's only dedicated germ cell cancer awareness charity.  Their aim is to educate young men and women of the signs and symptoms of testicular and ovarian cancers through lifhe saving awareness campaigns.

Their aim is to RAISE AWARENESS, REDUCE EMBARRASMENT and SAVE LIVES through the early detection of this rare form of cancer.

 

Please support this cause which means such a lot to my family.  

Thanks, Bill.

Who are the Robin Cancer Trust?

The Robin Cancer Trust was founded in 2012 by the Freeman family following the untimely death of their son and brother, Robin Freeman, aged just 24.

Robin was diagnosed in the prime of his life in 2011 with a Mediastinal Germ Cell Tumour (a grapefruit-sized tumour in his chest). Following 10 months in treatment, including several rounds of chemotherapy and a stem-cell transplant, he was told there was nothing else his medical team could do. He passed away surrounded by his loved ones on December 10th 2011.

His family promised him that ‘he would never just be a photograph on the wall’ and that something good would be born of his tragedy. Robin inspires us to raise awareness, reduce embarrassment and save young lives through the early detection of germ cell cancers.

We want to prevent another family from going through what we did.
