Cancer, don't pick on my best friend!!!!!

I am taking on the Race for Life Pretty Muddy to help raise more money for Cancer Research UK.

Last year (2019) my best friend was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin Lymphoma. No-one deserves to have Cancer, my best friend was one of those.
It was hard watching her go through Cancer and we did all we could to help and support her. There were times when she wanted to give up; she'd come so far and battled through so much. The treatments were aggressive but my best friend is the strongest woman I know.
Her last Chemo was in January 2020.
A few weeks later we got the best news........after a scan she is in COMPLETE REMISSION. My best friend can now concentrate on getting stronger and making more, happy memories.

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, to save more lives and find a cure for cancer.
Please donate anything you can.
