Chris and Kerry McCarthy's daughter Ava was diagnosed with a stage 3 Wilms tumour, with complications, when she was two. These complications meant that a standard treatment plan might not be effective. CCLG members' research, backing and knowledge was behind Ava's treatment plan. In 2013, she completed her first year post-chemotherapy, cancer free. Chris and Kerry set up 'Ava's Pink Quest' to raise money for several organisations, including CCLG, who have helped Ava in her journey as they wanted to give something back. Since starting their fundraising, Chris, Kerry and various friends and family members have completed a wide range of fundraising events, from skydives to runs, abseiling to fundraising parties. Ava's fund at CCLG is used to support our work into renal tumour research.
Chris's employer, Everyone Active, also adopted CCLG as their chosen charity in 2013, and have held many events to raise even more money for Ava's fund.
