Delyn MP supports Kilimanjaro climb to fight Breast Cancer

David Hanson, MP for Delyn, will tomorrow (Friday the 14th of November) meet with Jason Hill who in 12 months’ time will be climbing Kilimanjaro the highest mountain in the world to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer in memory of his mother Lousia, who passed away when Jason was a young teenager.

Caerwys resident Jason Hill is to climb the world’s highest freestanding mountain, Kilimanjaro to help raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer in memory of his mother Lousia. Local MP, David Hanson, has offered to help raise this issue and support the campaign.

Jason Hill, whose mother died from breast cancer, is looking to raise awareness for Breakthrough Breast Cancer and the dangers of secondary breast cancer. 36,000 Women in the UK are living with secondary breast cancer and only have an average life expectancy of 2 years with a woman dying every hour from the disease.

David Hanson MP said:

“Cancer is a terrible disease that could strike anyone and the figures for women living and dying with secondary breast cancer are disappointing. It is important to help raise awareness of this terrible disease and I support the efforts of Jason Hill to do this.

I know that Jason has a very personal story behind his determination to help raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer and raise awareness of secondary Breast Cancer. I wish him luck with this efforts. If you want to donate please visit Jason’s just giving page: http://www.justgiving.com/Jason-Hill25 . You can also keep up with his progress via the Facebook page Kilimanjaro Trek Sept 2015.”

‘This year it hit home to me more so just how young mum was when she was so cruelly taken from us. I felt compelled to do something special to honour her brave battle and at the same time raise as much as possible for Breakthrough Breast Cancer’.
