Katie's Legacy Syndicate
#Katie's Legacy Syndicate is driving fundraising and increased awareness in memory of Katie Pritchard, a 37-year old NHS nurse manager who lost her life to cervical cancer earlier this summer.
Katie's Legacy Syndicate aims to raise funds for research and awareness of cervical cancer.
The core initiative: Peter Pritchard, Katie's father, announced Old Gold Racing will be donating a horse for syndication with £20 from every syndicate share and any additional donations being shared equally between the Lady Garden Foundation and Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust.
This page is for anyone who would like to add an additional donation to the Lady Garden Foundation and Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust. (Donations from this page will be split equally between the two charities).
Having spotted a lump Katie, a 37-year old NHS nurse manager herself, self-referred herself to a gynaecologist for a second opinion that she found out the devastating news that the lump was a symptom of cervical cancer.
After a course of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and brachytherapy in the spring, initially, the cancer responded positively to the treatment.
However, in December 2022, after further scans, Katie was told the cancer had returned, and, sadly, that she only had a few months left to live. Katie sadly passed away six months later in June 2023.
Messages from our receiving charities:
Jenny Halpern Prince MBE, Co-Founder and Chair of The Lady Garden Foundation said: “We are so moved to have been selected as the beneficiaries of this charitable drive - especially upon hearing Katie’s tragic story. In the UK, around 3,100 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year and it’s the most common cancer in women under 35 years old. It is so important that this cause gets as much funding as possible and we are incredibly grateful to Peter and his family for helping us on our mission”.
Louise Newton, Trustee at Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust said: “We are so very saddened to hear the devastating news that Katie lost her life to this cancer, as did my wonderful friend Jo, 25 years ago. We are honoured to be part of celebrating Katie’s life and we are dedicated to improving outcomes for people like her and her family. Our mission for the last 25 years has been to support and inform all of the many women who are diagnosed with cervical cancer every year in the UK. Our vision for the future is of a day when cervical cancer is a thing of the past. This initiative will help us to work towards that goal.”
