Breaking News

2010 is a special year – it’s our 10th Anniversary

brown dog

is a registered charity

(formed in 2000

by ex. cancer patient

Mark Storer with

Anil Patel and Peter Little)

that raises money to help

men, women and children

who have cancer across the UK

In the last 9 years

brown dog have raised

£200,000

brown dog is unique

and proud of the fact that

every pound raised

goes directly to the

people who need it

i.e. no admin costs

To mark this occasion we want to do something special

We want to raise £50,000 to purchase a Molemax 111

state-of-the art skin cancer dermoscopy imaging system

which will provide early detection of skin cancer and save lives

If we raise £50,000 brown dog will also achieve a critical

milestone in it’s history i.e. £Quarter million raised

This target won’t be easy, it’s big a challenge

We plan to raise most of this money through our

annual challenge on 5th June 2010

To mark our special occasion we are going back to the

Lake District to undertake the Wordsworth Challenge

which was the very first challenge we did

We want you to join us on

The Wordsworth Challenge on 5th June 2010

(climbing 8 mountains in 14 hours)

This pack provides more information

and explains what you need to do to join us


Slide3 l.jpg

9 years ago a cancer patient had a mission

When I was told I had cancer and that I would need 6 months

of chemotherapy I thought my luck had run out.

When I was told after my treatment that I was in full remission, that’s when I realised I was really one of the lucky ones.

That’s when I knew in my heart that I needed to raise money to say thank you to those who had saved my life and help others who have

cancer.

Mark Storer

Founder Member Brown Dog


Slide4 l.jpg

A Challenge was created

Our Objective

was to raise

£5,000

The challenge planned for June had to be postponed due

to the foot and mouth epidemic – it went ahead in September.

With less day-light in June the first two mountains had to be climbed in the dark!


Slide5 l.jpg

It was a memorable day!


Slide6 l.jpg

£23,000 was raised


Slide7 l.jpg

We used the money to create

‘The Wordsworth Day-Room’

The Wordsworth Room provides a greater degree of home type comfort

for patients to make their stay in hospital more comfortable which helps

improve their moral, which subsequently helps them to cope with

treatment and improves recovery.


Slide8 l.jpg

Brown Dog was created….

We decided that if we were going to do more

fund raising events we needed to have an

identity.

At the time most of the people who did the first

challenge worked for Lloyds-TSB and as such

Mark suggested we called ourselves

‘brown donkey’ as a spoof of the Lloyds black

horse brand.

However, one of the team said “why do we

want to be called brown donkey when you

have a brown dog – let’s call ourselves

Brown Dog”.

So brown dog was formed named after Mark’s

faithful chocolate Labrador called Colin.

Here you see a picture of a very young Colin

that we used as the brown dog brand

on our marketing materials and t-shirts.

Slide11 l.jpg

2010 is our 10th Anniversary Year

We want to make it special

We want to do something special

We want you to be part of it


Slide12 l.jpg

We want you to help us raise £50,000

We want to purchase this state of the art

Cancer Dermoscopy Imaging System (Molemax 111)

used on patients with potential skin cancer

to provide early detection of malignant melanoma’s

(note: malignant melanoma is fatal if not detected early)

This equipment is for the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

Because Leicester is the National Skin Cancer Centre & University Hospital

this equipment will benefit other hospitals across the UK

Together we can save lives


Slide13 l.jpg

More about Molemax 111

  • Some Facts

  • Skin Cancer is rising rapidly in the UK

  • Malignant Melanoma is now the commonest cancer in young adults (33% under 50’s)

  • Malignant Melanoma is fatal if diagnosis is delayed

  • Better methods of early detection and surveillance are essential

  • Improved detection and surveillance is now available to achieve early detection e.g. Molemax 111

  • Raising money to purchase this equipment will prevent many lives being lost

  • Because Leicester is a national skin cancer centre and university hospital benefit from this will impact the whole country

  • What is a “Molemax 111”?

  • A “Molemax 111” is a portable dermoscopy imaging system which captures and stores digital dermoscopic images.

  • Sequential images of an individual mole can therefore be compared to track changes over time.

  • Research has shown that early melanomas can be diagnosed on the basis of subtle changes in the dermoscopic appearance before any change can be detected clinically. Additionally, it is also possible to more accurately map the moles of an individual and compare these with subsequent maps to see if new moles or melanomas are appearing or if existing lesions are changing both at a macroscopic and dermoscopic level. This imaging system is fast and simple to use, both for the capture and retrieval of images.

  • What are the benefits of a “Molemax 111”

  • Leicester is a national skin cancer centre and receives tertiary referrals from other units in the region.

  • Installation of a Molemax 111 system in the Department of Dermatology would finally provide an innovative, unique “state of the art” service for the patients attending the skin cancer centre.

  • It would enhance diagnostic and surveillance skills and would help increase the early detection of melanoma.

  • The dermatology department is also an academic teaching unit responsible for teaching undergraduate medical students as well as specialist registrars. These are the dermatologists of the future.

  • Leicester is also a popular department with General Practitioners who are keen to gain more expertise in the diagnosis of skin cancer.

  • A dermoscopy imaging system would be an invaluable teaching aid for all of these groups. Finally, the dermatology department is also very active in the field of research and members of the department publish regularly in peer reviewed journals. Leicester has a particular interest in skin cancer and dermoscopic diagnosis. A “Molemax 111” would significantly enhance research activity.

Our 2010 challenge – back to the Lakes

THE

WORDSWORTH

CHALLENGE

Climb 8 mountains

In 14 hours

The Wordsworth Challenge will take place in the beautiful English Lake District

which provides some of the most breathtaking scenery in the UK.

You will climb 8 mountains ending up on Scafell Pike, the Highest mountain in England

which provides dramatic views across the Cumbrian mountains and the Irish Sea

This challenge is not a walk in the park. Starting at 4am in the morning,

walking for 14 hours, covering a distance of 24 miles, up-hill and down dale

will push your body to the limit, by the end you will be exhausted.

But the sense of achievement at the top will be memorable

Alternative Challenge – 5th June

In 2010 for the first time in our history we are planning to organise a parallel

challenge (subject to demand) on the same day and same place,

which again makes our 10th anniversary very special.

We are doing this because;

Some of you have told us you don’t like mountains but want to support us

Some of you love the Lakes but feel Wordsworth is just too demanding for you

Some of you carry old injury’s but can walk on the flat and smaller hills

Some of you have a requested a less demanding option


Slide23 l.jpg

The Tiggy-Winkle Walk

The Tiggy-Winkle Walk will be 10-15 miles around Keswick.

We are currently looking at two options (shown below)

Assuming we have sufficient challengers registered in November & December

a dry run will be undertaken in the New Year

and final details confirmed.

Possible ‘Green’ Walk Route

Takes you to where the Wordsworth

Challenge starts but instead of going

up the first mountain you walk

along-side Derwent Water with

fabulous views of the Lake and

then back to Keswick on the other

side of the Lake.

Possible ‘Red’ Walk Route

Takes you along an old railway

line, crossing the river many times

on-route to Thelkeld and then brings

you back via scenic woods to Keswick

Raising £50,000 won’t be easy

As ever, some challengers will have a greater capability to raise more than others.

But if everyone does their very best we can do this!

The most we have ever raised is £35,000 in 2006 so we

know this won’t be easy.

This year we need the biggest effort ever!

Don’t just rely on sponsorship,

get friends and family to

organise and take part

in fund-raising events.

Good Luck!
