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

In memory of

Pauline Nurse & Alcindo Freitas

The 27th of April 2018 will always be one of the worst days of my life, I lost the most amazing Nan anyone could ever wish for! Unfortunately I also lost my grandfather to cancer when I was only 4 years old, it's not something you will ever get over!

Many members of our family and friends have battled with this horrible illness some thankfully beat it, while others didn't. Watching this disease take over a loved one is not something I would like to witness again but unfortunately the likelihood of this is very high! 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.

My cousin Hayley asked me to run with her in memory of nan, I was relieved when she said she was signing up to the 5k and not the 10k! 😂

I would be very grateful for every single pound you donate, it will make a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
