I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer sooner.

The word cancer is around us all everyday but many of us only really hear it when we or a loved one is directly affected by it.

My mother-in-law was recently diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. When she told us, the word ‘cancer’ became more real than ever before. Too often have I heard about others fights against cancer but their stories have never resonated with me like they do now.

Strong and determined, my mother-in-law is by far the most courageous woman I know and I am so proud to call her my mum and best friend. At every stage of this fight she has remained resolute in her positive approach and firm in her need for normality. Her bright attitude has rubbed off on all those around her – we know this is a fight she will win.

The work that Cancer Research is doing aims to not just find a cure but to also support those diagnosed with cancer. Whilst, there is not yet a definitive cure, the physical and emotional care that is now offered alongside treatments is making the fight more manageable. It’s ensuring that there are more and more cancer survivors.

Along with a number of other family members, we’ve decided to take part in the Race for Life to show our support for all those affected by cancer and to raise money to help towards the amazing work that Cancer Research is doing.

Cancer is happening right now, 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so I'd be so grateful if you would please sponsor me.
