To do something towards helping stop others going through the heartbreak so many families suffer due to Cancer.

In memory of

Gabrielle Harris

I'm writing this on the day of my great friend, Gabrielle Harris' Funeral. She lost her 4 year battle with Ovarian Cancer. This is the second Funeral I'll have been to in as many years where young children have lost a young parent - lost far too young and devastating for the families left behind.

5 years ago my wonderful Mummy was diagnosed with Lymphoma and I'm thrilled to say that intense treatment has resulted in her fit and healthy and loving life with us all today. LONG may that continue.

Emma Chaffin, another friend close to me is now strongly fighting a Breast Cancer battle and she, along with other Mum's from my daughter's school suggested we all do this 26 mile walk through the night to help make a wider difference. It will be an honour to walk with them and to help make a difference.

Watching my Mummy, Gabrielle, Emma and others go through treatment and with such strength and courage -
this walk suddenly, on the day of Gabrielle's funeral, has never meant so much.

If each year Cancer Research is getting closer to beating cancer, and they've helped double survival rates in the last 40 years - I am up for helping those statistics as I need my Mummy to stay around and my children need their Grandmother. Emma needs to be there for her family and I want to do something to help!

Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me, however little an amount - I'll be so grateful.

As it was becoming doubtful I could make the race, I am coming late to the game with asking for sponsorship, which is now next weekend, but I will keep my page open and will be SO SO grateful for any support you can give us. Thank you! xx
