Lizzie’s Legends Fundraising Page

Dear readers,

I promised my sister a week or so to put this fundraiser on my blog. Wedding planning has been taking up my time. My darling sister, Elizabeth Rogers, has been in contact with an old school friend, Elizabeth Corser, who set up a fundraising page to raise money for a small charity, Pancreatic Cancer Action. For Elizabeth Corser, who I shall now refer to as Lizzie, it is an important charity, in that her father, David, is battling against the illness. He diagnosed with the advanced pancreatic cancer in July 2014 and given a year to live, but he has been receiving treatment and is fighting hard.

I am not going to go into too much detail as I will only be repeating what is already written on Lizzie’s website, but it is great to see her being proactive. With help from her friends (one of them of course is my sister) they are running 10k at the end of May. I’m a little unsure where, however.

Amazingly, they have already reached the 1500 pound target (sorry for not using the pound sterling symbol. It doesn’t appear on Honduran keyboards). I do ask if you keep donating, however, as it is going to an important and well worthy cause. Here is a link. http://m.virginmoneygiving.com/mt/uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserProfilePage.action?userUrl=lizzielegends&isTeam=true&un_jtt_redirect=un_jtt_iosV&hc_location=ufi

From a personal point of view, I wish David all the best in his fight against the illness. I also send my love to Lizzie. You’re doing a great thing!

About Nicholas Rogers

I am an English journalist/copywriter living in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and I have been here since 2011. I originally came to work with Casa Alianza, which supports street kids and vulnerable youths. I then stayed on, after meeting Pamela Cruz Lozano, who calls me her adopted Catracho. I work freelance journalism and I have my own translation business. Why did I come here? For the challenge, to open my mind and get out of my comfort zone. I love literature and I've written a book with street kids. I write novels, short stories and poetry, all of which you will find on this blog, as well as a lot of information about Honduras. View all posts by Nicholas Rogers
