The family and friends of a Forest Hill woman with bowel cancer have cycled through London to raise money for her treatment.

Pip Majerski was diagnosed 10 months ago with stage four bowel cancer, which spread to her liver so surgery is no longer a viable treatment option.

The 48-year-old’s treatment costs £3,500 per month and she started a fundraiser page with the help of family to pay for the treatment.

Pip said: “Along with chemotherapy to try and shrink the tumours I have been offered a newer treatment called monoclonal antibodies which target the tumour cells and turn off the growth factor to help them shrink.

“Hopefully my tumours will shrink to allow for future surgery or at the very least allow for a good quality of life for as long as possible.

“This drug is currently the gold standard treatment recommended by NICE. Sadly due to NHS funding rules, I was only allowed a certain number of cycles for free, meaning that in order to continue I must fund this treatment myself.

“I am currently fit and well and hope to remain this way for as long as possible.”

Family and friends helped organise Pedal for Pip event where people cycled to and from Forest Hill to the Thames barrier to raise funds for her treatment.

More than 25 people took part, including her sister Nikki Dupin and nephew Louis Dupin, to help add to the pot of funds raised already.

Pip needs to raise £40,000 in total for the treatment, and is already nearing the halfway mark.

She said: “A massive thank you to everyone who is supporting me through Pedal for Pup this weekend - you are all amazing kind and incredible.”
