Lizzie Morris will be hosting a charity Easter tea party to raise funds for a forthcoming Himalayan challenge.

“Breast cancer awareness is a cause that is incredibly important to my family and has affected us deeply,” explained Lizzie.

“My sister, Vicky Brzonkalik was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer initially at 32 and then again several years later, which went into remission. Unfortunately, it returned three years ago, following the birth of her daughter, Daisy and had spread to her lungs, liver and bones.

“She was extremely unwell, and her vital organs nearly failed. This resulting in extreme fatigue and weight loss and excruciating pain due to the disease in her spine and hips. All sounds pretty dismal and it was at the time. Thanks to the treatment she received, and the lifestyle changes she made as well as her mindset, her health has improved and she is living a very full life with her precious little family.”

Throughout this time, Vicky has raised thousands for various breast cancer charities. This included a charity challenge ten years ago with Coppafeel!, a fundraising trek across the Peruvian Inca Trail and Machu Picchu.

“I’ve decided to follow in Vicky’s footsteps and embark on a Coppafeel! Charity Challenge trekking in the Himalayas in November. This will be an extraordinary and life-changing trek, all in the name of checking chests! Along with Gi Fletcher and some other famous faces, I will embark on a five-day trek in the Indian Himalayas, in a bid to raise funds towards CoppaFeel’s life-saving mission,”said Lizzie.

She is in preparation for the trek and has set up a funding page: Lizzie Morris is fundraising for CoppaFeel (justgiving.com)

“Your donations will not only support my fundraising target, but most importantly CoppaFeel! They are on a mission to stamp out the late diagnosis of breast cancer by making sure that young people are regularly checking their boobs, pecs and chests and getting to know their bodies to have the confidence to see their GP if something just doesn’t feel normal,” she added.
