A case that’s really close to my heart is cancer and cancer research. I don’t think I know anyone who has not been affected by cancer.
It’s a disease that harms so many of us. To be able to lower the risk of cancer taking control of our lives, research is necessary. There are over 30 types of cancer. Do what you can to check yourself. Do your research. Christmas is just around the corner. So many Research Centers offers different gifts that you can give as a Christmas present. By doing this you are a part of change and you’ll help put a smile on someone’s face.
Each year The Norwegian Cancer Research Center hang up Christmas stars around hospitals in Norway. To be able to do this they need us. We are the ones donating money for them to decorate the hospitals. We are the ones reminding people suffering with cancer that they’re not alone. Not everyone will be greeted by a huge Christmas tree and table full of Christmas food during Christmas. Some people have to spend their Christmas at a hospital, in a white hospital bed. Someone’s not coming home for Christmas.
These Christmas stars remind us all that there is hope. The simplicity of a Christmas star is something I find so beautiful. When I go on a walk through my town at night and look into each house that I pass – a Christmas star is lit in the window. It brings joy and wonder – and a hope for a better tomorrow. Walking through the halls of the hospital looking up and seeing all of the beautiful stars covering the ceiling really makes you think. So many people have reached out a hand to help and to bring a little hope into the lives of the people affected by a disease. It tells a story, it lets us know that someone is thinking of us.
I have opened a research fund where you can donate money for cancer research. I hope you will be a part of this to hopefully better someone else’s life. Whether that’s a young girl dreaming of a better tomorrow or a loved elderly man wanting to come home to his family. We all deserve so much better. I don’t want anyone having to see their loved ones fade away to cancer. It hurts.
The money will go directly to the Norwegian Cancer Research Society. It will all go directly into the account of the The Norwegian Cancer Society and will only be used for research. They help find a cure for cancer not only in Norway but all around the world. If you would like to help out and donate a small or big amount of money that would mean the world to so many people!
You can donate no matter where you are from.

I have teamed up with Hobo Soy Candles. Rachael, the owner very kindly send me two beautiful Bloodwise candles. 10% of sales of the Bloodwise candles is donated to the Bloodwise charity to help beat blood cancers and to help promote the charity. Rachael’s old school friend Anna had been diagnosed with an aggresive form of Leukaemia about a year and a half ago. They got together and decided to support the Bloodwise charity, which is the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research charity in the UK.
Rachael and I both want people to appreciate something simply made by a person, at home and not in a factory. It takes a lot of time and effort to make each and every one of the candles. We appreciate people doing anything, whether that’s something small or huge, to help. She now works full time with the Hobo Soy Candles and I am so proud of her for doing just that. The candles made by bathroom and bedroom both cosy and relaxing and remind me to take care of myself as well as others.
This day today means a lot to me. Thank for you taking the time to read what I had to say and if you donated I thank you from the bottom of my heart – thank you.
