Hi My name is Anne and this year my life changed.
I lost my father to prostate cancer. He battled this terrible disease for almost 10 years and it was already terminal when it was first discovered. He was determined to fight it and he did for such a long time through advanced treatment and medicine.
I'm doing this run for the parent i have lost, and for all the people still fighting. By you sponsoring me you can help the families and the friends of the people who are suffering. It will give them the chance to have a better quality of life for longer. There is nothing worst than watching someone you love in pain and there is nothing you can do to help.
Events like Race for Life are amazing in funding Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work into awareness, diagnosis and treating cancer. By sponsoring me now you can help more people survive cancer.
Working in pathology has made me realise that there are so many people fighting cancer of all ages.
I will be taking part in the 5km race for life at Regent's Park. This will be one of my ways of dealing with grief and to give back for all the support my family received.
Thank you for all the support and donations, every penny counts towards making a difference :)
