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.
My best friend Nicola, and my boys godmother has just spent the first part of this year fighting breast cancer. She has shown me how to live my life and inspired me to want to help raise awareness for this heartbreaking disease.
Nicola has shown such grace and resilience in the face of what has been her darkest days. I am proud to have her in my life and the boys and I want to support Nicola and stand side by side with her to help fight this disease in whatever way we can.
Nicola and taught me to take life by the scruff of the neck and live it to its fullest, appreciate what you have , and to most importantly not sweat the small stuff.
This weekend just gone this awful disease took the life of an extrodainary woman Carla Incerti-fisher and I have been left feeling angry at the injustice of a diease that shows no discrimination. Carla was loved by so many and will be missed by so many.
Running which everyone knows I can't do shows my determination to help stand up to cancer. I feel lucky to have my best friend still here and showing the world she is a true survivor, not everyone is so blessed to have their loved ones still here and still kicking ass.
Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Cancer Research UK.
Please help the boys and I raise some money to stand up to cancer.
