We all know someone whose life has been changed by cancer.
I watched one of my best friends lose her Mum, Amy. My family lost Carl. I hugged Carl's wife Anne as she broke down last year, several years after we lost him and I have never felt so helpless. Carl and Anne are part of the reason I am in the job I'm in and am the person I am, and I never got a chance to say thank you or goodbye. I have watched Amy's amazing youngest daughter grow up to look more and more like her mum every day and my friend show the world just how strong a person can be. I want her beautiful daughters and her gorgeous new granddaughter to know that Amy is the inspiration behind so many people raising money for Cancer Research. If we keep going- maybe someone else won't have to lose their Carl or Amy.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. All the money raised makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s work, so please sponsor me to make a complete fool of myself in a muddy field!
