GeeWizz Charity presents Sarcoma UK with annual donation of £20,000
GeeWizz were delighted to visit and present the amazing team at Sarcoma UK with their yearly £20,000 donation to fund vital research into the disease, a charity which is very close to their heart.
Sarcoma UK is based in London and is the only cancer charity throughout the UK which specialises and focuses on every type of Sarcoma, as well as investing in research. Everyday 15 people are diagnosed with Sarcoma, a cancer of the bone and soft tissue. It is extremely difficult to treat, and one of the hardest to diagnose. There are around 100 different sub-types of known Sarcoma cancer.
Earlier this year, Gina’s daughter Ali celebrated a massive milestone of being five years clear of Myxoid Liposarcoma cancer. In April, Gina also participated in Virgin Money London Marathon to help raise funds and support Sarcoma UK and to make a difference.
The cheque was presented by the GeeWizz team, Crystal Barber and Jade Perry, who said: “It was an absolute privilege to meet the wonderful Sarcoma team and see how they operate and give the best advice and support at the hardest time for those who are newly-diagnosed and their families. It was fantastic to see first -hand how they build relationships with key researchers and donors and how their support line works and how they help transform the lives of everyone affected by the horrible disease.”
