The other day a most inspiring story came to us at Walker Tracker. One that immediately touched the hearts of our whole team. Mark Smith reached out to us to host a 5 million steps challenge on the Walker Tracker platform to raise money and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support who supported his family through the diagnosis and ongoing treatment of his wife Nikki Smith. Nikki was diagnosed with breast cancer on October 16, 2018.
“Like all the clichés say, you always think it will happen to someone else, and until it affects a deeply loved one, you do not realize what an impact both the diagnosis and the treatment has on the lives of everyone involved. The medical staff and support groups like MacMillan are amazing dealing with this everyday of the week and their support makes a huge difference to how we deal with it.” – Mark Smith1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.* According to the World Health Organization, it’s the most common cancer among women globally in both the developed and the developing world. Nikki, along with the support (and steps!) of her family, Nikki, Mark, Olly, Millie and Jessie the dog are taking on 5 million steps during the time of Nikki’s chemo treatment. Nikki, you are our hero. We’re taking the time to show our love and gratitude to the people in our lives, we urge you to do this with us! Please, join Walker Tracker in supporting Nikki and her family – you can donate to support this family and the cancer support charity that has given so much. Thank you, Walker Tracker Community!
