I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2013. I have had 2 major surgeries and continue to take medication to try to suppress the hormones that fed my cancer. Without Cancer Research I would not be alive today. I haven't been courageous or brave, I have been lucky, I found the lump and was diagnosed quickly and had and continue to have excellent care from the NHS.
I have registered to do the SHINE walk which is a 26.2 mile walk over night around London. My daughter, Charlotte and her friends Chloe, Alice Lucy and Amber are doing it with me. I am training, at a much slower pace than the girls, and I am determined to try to achieve this marathon walk and raise money for Cancer research.
Cancer had not only effected me but also members of my family and friends. I am doing this walk in memory of all of them but especially my Nana James, my 'aunty' Anna, Robert and my mother in law Eileen xxx
