I'm walking 10,000 steps every day this March for Cancer Research UK. Cancer does not choose who it affects and when. There’s no rhyme or reason. Most people will be affected during their lifetime.

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This March I’m walking 10,000 steps a day throughout the month to help beat cancer. Help me Walk All Over Cancer and fund life-saving research by making a donation to my page.

Until recently, I always thought it’s something that’s sad for people to go through, other people, but it doesn’t really directly affect me. Until we got the news, that it was one of our loved ones who was struck. This time, it was my mom. The selfless, brave, kind woman, who puts everyone else above herself and battles through, despite daily pain, discomfort and apprehension.

The thing I admire the most, is the grace in which she carries on, day after day, being grateful, appreciative and thankful for the very fact that her cancer was diagnosed early and that despite recurring challenges, she focuses on the dedication of the medical staff she is supported by, the love she has of her family and friends and the determination she has that she will not be defeated and let this beat her.

It’s at times like this, as a friend or relative, living with the knowledge and experience that your nearest and dearest is affected that you ask yourself what can I do to help. How can I solve this and make it go away. The response to that, is simply, you can’t, it’s out of any one persons control. But we are reminded, that we can help to make a difference. By sharing experiences with other survivors or with those who are less fortunate, and by simply supporting the incredible, ground breaking research that goes on behind the scenes. Each one of us can contribute to fighting this toxic disease.

The one thing I am reminded of with my Mom, is of the importance of keeping active and not dwelling. If you are physically able to do something, then make the most and do it. Don’t sit around being idle, when you are fortunate to be blessed with the ability to move.

To this end, I pledge to do just that. During the month of March, I will walk those 10000 steps a day, come rain or shine. When I ‘no want to’ or I’ve had a bad day at work, I will push myself, because I can.

Please support me in this challenge by donating to this wonderful and worthy cause. If you can’t afford to donate, perhaps consider fundraising yourselves and joining me in 10000 steps a day. With your help, we will see results.

Finally, to remind those around me, that this dreaded C has hit our family not once but twice in so many years. My brother in law, who keeps active, fit and healthy was diagnosed just over a year ago with a rare form. After surgery and treatment, the battle for him and his family continues.

Please do not go through life thinking that we cannot change things. We cannot change if cancer chooses one of us next, but we can choose to contribute to discovering and learning more about how it strikes and what can be done to treat it, in understanding more about what it means and what can be done to reduce the devastating damage and life changes it creates.

Thank you x
