Julie Gyi

A campaign has been set up to help raise money for a Preston business-woman so that she can get the life-saving treatment she needs to fight cancer.

Julie Gyi was recently diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of Sarcoma cancer, and has been advised by a Sarcoma specialist to travel to Germany for Immunotherapy treatment which will cost £100,000.

Julie opened CERAGEM UK in 2008, a business dedicated to helping people all over the North West and England to improve their general health and well-being.

Julie’s family have set up a Crowdfunding page, on You Caring, which has already raised almost £20,000 and friends and family are hosting fundraising events in support of the cause.

An auction is being held at the Ceragem Centre on Saturday 1st April and the family are looking for support of raffle prizes, items for the auction, cakes and fancy goods.

They are also holding a Zumbathon on Saturday 8 April at Caritas Community Centre, Brooke St, which will last for 3 hours and will include a raffle, cake stall and refreshments.

Karen Martyniuk, who is helping spread the word about the campaign, said:] “Julie Gyi (photo attached) is one of the nicest, most heart-centred, caring, compassionate, loving people I have ever met, and she is the business owner of CERAGEM Preston.

“It was Julie’s inspiration that brought Ceragem to the UK, and for over 9 years she has dedicated her life to helping hundreds, and thousands of people, to improve their health, not just from Preston and the North West, but from all across the country.

“If you feel you can help, in any way, please do get in touch. Every little truly does help.”

You can follow the campaign by visiting the online You Caring page.
