I’m walking 10,000 steps this March for Cancer Research UK.

In memory of

Mary Chick

In March it will be 9 years since my mum died due to cancer. She had become ill during Christmas and in the January of 2010 received the diagnoses that she had cancer and it was terminal.

It had started in her lungs, and spread to her liver and brain and in the end stages her bones as well. She was given 12 weeks but sadly we only had 6 weeks.

She passed away on 14th March which was my first mother's day and her last, my son was 10mths old at the time.

My mum and I didn't always have an easy relationship following my dad's death when I was 17. I was diffcult during my late teens and not always kind or understanding of my mum and her moving on with her life.

Our relationship remained strained until I became pregnant when I found a new and deep appreciation of everything she had done for me.

She was amazing when my son was born and so happy to be a nanny at last.

I am grateful that we had the chance to repair our relationship but so very sad we didn't get more time together.

I'm doing this for my mum. Together we can help beat cancer, so that families don't lose loved ones long before their time.
