How I raised my money

I’ve received a lot of messages (and a fair bit of negative feedback) from people asking me how I managed to afford to go on this wonderful adventure i’m on. In this video I explain how I raised the money to make my website and trip a reality.

I know that not everyone can afford to do the things I am doing but the real purpose of 101 Things is to inspire others to believe that you can survive cancer and that there is life after cancer. All I ever wanted from sharing my story and my trip is to get people excited about the future and not fear it like I did for so long. The things on my list are examples of what is out there to look forward to. I believe that by having even just one of the things on my list to strive for and look forward to can change your entire outlook on life.

Believe in getting better and believe that there is a life after cancer. Even if you are not ill get out there and live your dreams. Do things that make you smile and appreciate your life as it is in this very moment. Anything is possible and I like to think that my story and trip is testament to that. X

    How anyone can give you negative feedback is beyond me! I lost my Mum to Cancer in my 20s and it’s really made me focus on the important things challenging myself and helping others. I see one of your aims is raleigh international. I did one of their assessment weekends this weekend it was tough but fab! Your film mention s insurance. A good mate is fighting cancer and would love to visit his sister in dubai but insurance is very high. What is the insurance company you mention? Thanks for your help. Lots of love! Emma x

    • Hi Emma
      Thank you so much for your message and your support. I can’t tell you how sorry I am to learn about your mum. This disease makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever.
      I’m so glad you are doing Raleigh. I absolutely loved it. Very hard work but so rewarding. There are some videos of my projects on here if you fancy a look.
      My insurance company is called they are amazing. They are the only ones who would insure me. It was set up by someone who had cancer and couldn’t get insurance when she was ill so she decided to set up her own company. Please pass it onto your friend and wish him all the best for me.
      Good luck with Raleigh and thank you once again for getting in touch.
      Love Greig x
