Helen's mother Angela writes: "20 years ago, June 17th 2002, our beloved daughter, sister and friend Helen, who lit up a room and lit up our lives, lost her enormous battle against cancer which began when she was just 25 years old.(

"20 years ago one of Helen's oncologists, Professor Angus Dalgleish, ( ) was pioneering research into cancer vaccines and immunotherapy when others doubted its success. Today immunotherapy is a major player in the treatment of cancer. Professor Dalgleish's research continues to innovate which is why on this special anniversary we are asking you to give generously in memory of Helen.

Research requires clinical trials and studies. They are vital but expensive which is why we are asking for your help to enable others to benefit from a drug called LDN which has already been used in cancer patients with very positive results. Now a big trial needs to be done so it can be available to all. To quote Professor Dalgleish. One trial and one cancer will make all the difference.'

I am committed to help raise funds for this trial and it means so much that you will help by donating. All funds raised by the Helen Feather Trust and donated here go directly to the ICVI and are ring fenced to fund the trial.

Should insufficient funds be raised money donated will go to work on a pretrial of LDN and further research by Professor Dalgleish and his team on LDN and cancers.

Thank you so much."
