This weekend was the prestigious MAD Blog Awards, where I was lucky to be a finalist in the category for Outstanding Contribution. I was in this category for all the work I’ve done to raise awareness of different cancers, supporting and promoting different campaigns, fundraising, and launching my own campaign, #EmmasArmy against Cancer which has so far raised just shy of £3000. This campaign saw some amazing people, walking between 10 and 104 miles each, for Cancer Research. I told my story, no details spared, whilst battling Cancer last year and aim to continue raising money and awareness.
Thank you so much to everyone who got involved in any of these campaigns, shared my posts, RT’d my tweets, walked in #EmmasArmy, sponsored, wrote a blog post, nominated me for an award or voted for me for an award.
I didn’t win at the awards this year, but all of the Outstanding Contribution finalists were called up on stage after watching a lovely tribute video of us, and presented with winner trophies. Massive congratulations to the overall winners, Team Honk, who raised a staggering £33,000.00 for Comic Relief.
You can watch the video made by Tots100 and the MAD Blog Awards, which we were presented with at the awards here – and hear a little about the incredible women I was up against, and honoured to stand on stage, hand in hand with…
I would be hugely grateful if any of you who haven’t yet sponsored my campaign, could help us get to that £3000 milestone, by sponsoring one of the team here.
