The Lady Garden Foundation:
Having lost my most precious Mother to Gynaecological Cancer almost 8 years ago it still shocks and deeply saddens me that the 15 months from her diagnosis to her passing could have possibly be avoided. Knowing now that had she gone to see her Doctor's when any of her symptoms had arisen we could be telling a very different story.
Cancer treatment is brutal and obviously for the ones left behind, the journey is harrowing. My sister and I were not terribly well informed on Cancer in general let alone the Women's cancers. This is probably the scariest part. Most women are equally in the dark when it comes to the 5 Gynaecological Cancers. We feel strongly that awareness is the key.. obviously running alongside raising much needed funds for research and Doctors and everything else modern science requires.
Having helped co-found The Lady Garden Foundation has been one of the most incredible experiences of my entire life. Sharing your sadness helps when hearing others equally sad stories. In a weird way I feel strengthened by getting on with our mission.
Knowing we are already helping other women and their families and that we are definitely onto many good & exciting leads means that the desperation left by the huge hole in my family is somehow creating a positive, makes her death somewhat less pointless.
I hate problems, I just want solutions.
Tamara lives in London with her husband and their daughter & young son.
