Andrea’s AMMF Army to scale new heights

Shares

Cancer survivor Andrea Sheardown, from Sandbach, has been relentless in her fundraising for the AMMF cholangiocarcinoma charity.

Having battled the deadly cholangiocarcinoma bile duct cancer of the liver, Andrea was initially given just weeks to live at the end of 2015.

Somehow, thankfully, she has defied the odds and is still here with us today.

Ever since, she has made it her mission to raise as much money and awareness as possible for AMMF, the only UK charity dedicated to helping to find a cure for this cancer.

 

 

Since her fundraising challenges began, Andrea and her ‘AMMF Army’ of supporters have raised almost £60,000.

Andrea explained: “I’ve done the three peaks in the middle of winter after my chemotherapy finished, I then climbed Kilimanjaro in February 2018, cycled from Vietnam to Cambodia in February 2019.

“In just two weeks I will attempt to climb to Kala Patthar – just above Everest Base Camp – with my 16 year old son, my husband, my sister and 11 other loyal friends.”

 

 

Nicknamed #AndreasAMMFArmy the intrepid group will embark upon the challenge in one of the coldest months and they will be taking the AMMF’s new charity mascot ‘Hope Bear’ with them.

Andrea said: “Please take a look at my story and let me know if you can share my story to help others realise that life can go on after a deadly cancer diagnosis and that you can still have dreams and push boundaries that you never thought off before!”
