I have decided to take part in Race for Life 2019, in honour of my mum, as well as others fighting against cancer.
19 years ago, my mum was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I was very young at the time, and didn't really understand what was going on. I only knew that my mummy was very poorly.
Thankfully, after chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery, she was one of the lucky ones who survived.
Then, a few months ago, mum became worried about her swallowing reflex, so went to the doctors. After going for tests, it was discovered that she had Oesophogeal cancer. As of writing this, she is undergoing treatment.
This is my way of giving back to Cancer Research UK, and doing whatever I can to help.
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k 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.
