Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and save lives.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
1 in 2.
Just think about that. 50% of the population will have to deal with a personal cancer diagnosis and, I imagine, the other 50% will need to support them through their treatment. That's an awful statistic and one that organisations like Cancer Research UK are fighting to change.
We lost my dad to cancer when I was 17 and, since then, other relatives, friends and colleagues have been struck down with various forms. Treatments and technology have improved massively over the past 35 years, due to organisations searching for a cure and the wonderful people that support that research.
Just a small donation could make all the difference - maybe not on it's own, but when combined with others that will support me and the various runners taking part, it could be a real game-changer.
Thanks for reading.
