I am running in honor of several friends currently battling cancer.

I think each and everyone of us have had cancer touch our lives in some way. I've watched some very brave people battle this disease... and sometimes they win and very sadly sometimes they do not. It's the most terrifying news a person can be handed and one of the most difficult battles a person will have to face. It's charities like this that help find treatments and cures for this horrible disease and I am excited to be a part of it.
I will be running in honour of my friend Liz's mother, Anne. She has been recently diagnosed with breast cancer and is undergoing her first round of chemotherapy. Not only is she undergoing chemo and later surgery, she is also a carer for her husband. She is a wonderful mother, wife and friend. I am proud to represent her and I hope it will give her the moral boost she needs.
I am also running in honour of my beautiful friend Cheri. She has been battling cancer for the better part of the last 4 years. She shows incredible strength and courage in the face of such an awful diagnosis. With every struggle after chemo or every setback she's faced, she goes forward with a positive attitude and zest for living life to its fullest every day. I am so proud of her as not many people can take what she's had to go through. I hope that this little race half way across the world from her will help in some way.
Both of these women are huge inspirations and I cannot be running for a better cause in their honour.

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and save lives.

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 please sponsor me now.
