I’m raising as much as I can to beat cancer

In June last year, my amazing Mum was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
If you didn’t already know, cancer sucks & the treatment that goes along with it isn’t too pleasant either. But my mum wasn’t going to let it beat her.

Since June, she has had on-going treatment & has made some life-changing decisions. Treatment started with 6 cycles of chemotherapy, which is pretty rubbish (& I wasn’t even the one going through it!). After that she had surgery which involved a mastectomy & lymph node clearance, which wasn’t much fun either! After everything had healed post-surgery, next up was 15 sessions of radiotherapy resulting in a bit of sunburn & hopefully getting rid of those pesky cancer cells.

This treatment has had a massive impact on her life & has been a struggle at times. Despite this, she is enjoying her unexpected early retirement & living life to the full. I couldn’t ask for a better mum & I honestly don’t know what I’d do without her.

All this treatment has only been possible because of new advances in cancer treatments due to research & we must remember how lucky we are to live in a country where this treatment is even available & best of all free on the NHS.

She is an incredibly brave woman and is still receiving treatment & she’s midway through another 12 cycles of a targeted chemo drug. But the end of treatment is in sight & hopefully we will recieve some good news soon.

But this isn’t just about my mum. Most people reading this will know at least one person who has been diagnosed with cancer.
1 in 2 people will get cancer in their lifetime, but because of charities like Cancer Research UK who dedicate their time to developing new treatments, more people are surviving from cancer than dying from it (amazing right?!).

On Sunday 19th May, I will be running the Simplyhealth Manchester Half Marathon for Cancer Research UK with my friend Ellie.
If completing this event can help to raise further awareness for Cancer or I can raise money to contribute towards further research then it will be worthwhile!
So please help me raise some money for this amazing charity & help kick cancer in the bum!!!
Even the smallest donations will make a difference & will be greatly appreciated!
