This year Tabatha, one of our 2s players, will be taking part in the BBC Children in Need Rickshaw Challenge.
Two years ago, Tabitha’s world turned upside down when she was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian cancer – a type of cancer that usually affects older women and can obviously have lasting effects.
For a 16 year old girl, who loved her fitness, this was utterly devastating. With a tumour that weighed 2kg, she quickly underwent 7 hours of surgery, which was then followed by ongoing and intensive treatment which caused hair loss, loss of strength and left her in pain. But with her incredible attitude, support from family & close friends, as well as a charity called PASIC Cancer Support, she finished her final round of chemo in March 2021.
We are glad to have her back on the pitch (in-between her rickshaw training!) playing with her hockey family.
If you are able to do so, please donate to help the fantastic charities that help people, like Tabatha, go through some of the toughest times and provide support and comfort to those that need it.
