Charity Black Tie Ball

In aid of Cancer Research UK, MacMillan Cancer Support and The Staniford Family

Hosted by

In aid of Cancer Research UK, Macmillan Cancer Support and The Staniford Family.

Our friend Lisa Staniford has recently been diagnosed with cancer. Having been misdiagnosed with a blocked milk duct, she now has a very rare aggressive inflammatory cancer which has spread to her liver and back and is now incurable. She was refused a mammogram as she is under 35 and has been back and forth to the doctors for 6 months before they finally diagnosed her. Lisa is the main carer for her husband, as well as having 3 children (aged 7, 5 and 10 months). Lisa helps everyone, runs a toddler group and is always there for her friends and now we want to be there for her. We are therefore holding the Charity Black Tie Ball as a fundraiser to raise awareness for early detection of cancer and to raise money for the 2 well-known cancer charities and also some money to help Lisa and her family have a break from this horrible disease and make some happy memories for them.

Lisa has a petition to cut the screening age for mammograms and smear sign this petition please follow this link:

        Easy to use - just add water.  Layer your favourite colours for stunning effects.  Each 8 gram retail packet makes over 1 litre, less expensive and more attractive than marbles or stones.  Available in clear and a rainbow of colours.  Non-toxic and environmentally safe.
