Media Doctor Tackles Inca Trail to Raise Funds for Penny Brohn Cancer Care

Dr Sarah Brewer is in training for a 50km trek along the original Peruvian mountain trail to Machu Pichu, Lost City of the Incas. She needs to be fit to ascend over three high mountain passes, including one at 4,200 metres.

‘It’s for a great cause,’ she says. ‘Penny Brohn Cancer Care is one of the few charities to offer advice on nutrition, self-help techniques and complementary therapies to support conventional cancer treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy.

Their unique approach helps people with cancer regain control of their life, alongside their usual medical treatment. All their specialist advice, day and residential courses are given free of charge.

I am so impressed that I have pledged to raise at least £10,000 to help support their work.’

Sarah, a medical nutritionist and award-winning journalist and author of over 50 popular health books, is happy to write features, and answer reader queries in exchange for magazine or newspaper sponsorship!

Please help her reach her £10,000 target by asking readers to visit www.justgiving.com/Sarah-and-Richard and making a donation, no matter how big or how small. Every little helps.


What sponsorship can do:
* £600 funds a full course of therapy sessions for a person affected by cancer
* £1250 funds 25 individual appointments
* £1500 means someone with cancer can benefit from a two day residential course
* £2000 means someone can benefit from a five day residential course
* £4000 funds the training of two groups of volunteers to run the Helpline
* £5000 funds the running of the Helpline for two months, during which, on average, they will
answer over 1000 calls and send out over 500 information packs.
