Sally Catt will swim the English Channel to raise money for ovarian cancer research

Dr Sally Catt, who runs the Master of Clinical Embryology course in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology is an everyday hero and needs our support as she swims the English Channel in a few months.

A close friend and colleague of Sally's was diagnosed recently with stage 4 ovarian cancer.  A mother to two young daughters, Sally's friend Caitlin is now fighting for her life.

Sally wants to increase awareness about the symptoms of ovarian cancer and raise money for much needed research.

Sally will swim from England to France (35km) this September.   She estimates it will take 17 hours.
