Campaign: To beat cancer with creativity

In 2009, my granddad died unexpectedly from cancer. My family only knew he had the disease for three weeks.

 

It shocked us and we all suffered because of it, so I decided to do something about the effects that experiencing cancer – both directly and indirectly – can have.

 

I am a budding artist, and my granddad loved my artwork ever since I started drawing at around seven-years-old.

 

With this skill, I decided to work with Fixers to create a book which would showcase my portraits and tell the stories of cancer sufferers from around the world, all to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

 

With the help of Fixers, I created a book called ‘Creative Against Cancer’ which holds a great collection of stories from people affected by the condition.

 

The book was sold nationally and raised hundreds of pounds for Cancer Research UK.
