More than one hundred people have signed up to take part in a charity walk on July 3 to support a young Bermondsey woman with incurable cancer.
Tilly Browne, 24, was diagnosed four years ago with breast cancer and Li–Fraumeni syndrome, an extremely rare disorder which leads to early-onset cancer.
While the breast cancer can be treated, Li-Fraumeni cannot. The ultra-rare condition, which affects less than 500 families across the globe, will continue to plague Tilly with cancer for the rest of her life – proving fatal unless a cure is discovered.
Now people have made the commitment to walk for Tilly to help raise money for treatment, travel costs and the George Pantziarka TP53 Trust, a charity supporting families dealing with Li-Fraumeni.
The News previously reported how after Tilly was diagnosed, her mum Janet got tested and was also diagnosed with breast cancer, as well as her sister being diagnosed with cervical cancer.
Tilly said: “I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who is taking part in my charity walk on Sunday, and their sponsors for their kindness and generosity.
“To everyone who has donated the wonderful gifts for the auction and raffle prizes. Your love and support has given me such hope and inspiration.”
The walk starts at 9am on July 3 on the green at Westminster Bridge and will end at Jamaica Road, where an after party will start at St Peter’s Catholic Club opposite Southwark Park.
The party will run from 1-7pm and feature a bouncy castle, face painting, raffles, auctions, DJ Noel and much more.
