I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

In October 2010, my dad was diagnosed with bowel cancer. He wouldn't have known had he not sent off a random stool sample. To say we were shocked that it actually lead to him being diagnosed with cancer would be an understatement. To see him go through his treatment was traumatic and upsetting, but he's a survivor. Just this month he went for an endoscopy & was finally given the news we wanted to hear...he didn't need to return to hospital for another 3 years. Two years ago I attended my regular smear test, I was told I had abnormal cells which needed to be treated...again this month, I've been told that I don't need to have a smear for another 3 years. These are the success stories, however I've also known very dear family who have succumbed to this horrific disease very recently. It is for my dad & the memory of my step-children's great-grandparents who sadly passed away, that I'd like to take part in this event. Three to four years ago, I'd never have even considered doing this, as I was severely obese in weight. Having now lost over 7 stone, I want to & can do this.

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.

Having an annual pass to Trentham, we visit quite regularly, but as of the beginning of April I'm going to start visiting more to get my fitness up. I'll be coming twice a week (after work on a Wednesday & a Saturday morning), so if anyone would like to meet up just let me know. I'll start off with a mixture of power walking & jogging around the lake in the time I have, to then build up to jogging/running more. I'm looking forward to it. 😁
