PLEASE CLICK GOING IF YOU ARE DONATING, GOING DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO CLIMB XX Maureen O Halloran With Teena Gates and Ronan Friel as her guides along with a small crew has decided to climb a mountain to raise funds in support of Karen Nicholson Stewart who at present is climbing her own mountain with fighting Cancer.
As most of you know I ran a competition a few weeks ago to treat one woman to a complete makeover with all the trimmings including a two page spread in a nationwide magazine, well a beautiful young mum of 33years old called Karen Nicholson Stewart won the competition and to say she has affected me greatly, personally is an understatement, No one deserved to win more than Karen did,, we had an amazing day together, video will be out soon, however what most of you found out with her radio interview and her post on my competition wall was that Karen was about to start a very life changing journey, Karen was diagnosed with Cancer for the second time a few months after giving birth to her last baby who is now 7 months old, Karen, is such a strong young lady and I fell in love with her instantly, no bull personality, fantastic character, the type of person I would love as a friend, Karen started her Chemo last tuesday 22nd April, which was five days after her makeover, and I am in contact with her every day, I think the reason that Karen had such an affect on me was that for the first time in my styling career working with Cancer Patients and Charities I had never styled a person who was only starting their journey, all of my clients were celebrating coming out the other end of cancer recovery, never before had I done a makeover at the start of the Journey, I have committed to Karen to support her and her husband Ed, in any way I can and I have a few things planned, One of them is a fundraising night of music and dance as Karen loves to dance and loves her music, and the other is I Will climb the mountain for her, All my buddies know I'm terrified of mountains but love looking at them, But in all fairness climbing a mountain is what Karen is doing right now and no ordinary mountain either so who am I to give into a fear of such a silly thing, I will prob panic up the mountain if I get to the top of it, but you know what?? For karen I'll fecken climb it, some of you maybe saying "ahh jasus what is she on about"" fear of a fecken Mountain? trust me its very real and I have purposely never done it out of sheer fear, everyone has their own and mine is mountains and heights.. So I need your help, I need to get into training for it But WILL YOU SPONSOR ME TO CLIMB THE MOUNTAIN FOR KAREN?? Here is a picture of Karen taken yesterday in the hospital, She has given me permission to post this as I will do nothing without her permission, leave your message below,, Can you also share this post with friends to see if they will also donate to the climb,, Thank you in advance to all who share and support this xxx
