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

So in September I'll be doing my 6th Great North Run. I originally said I wasn't going to do it the year for charity but I feel this is necessary this year.

I've have friends that are currently fighting this disease, friends that have beaten it and gone into remission, friends who beat cancer but can no longer have children due to the type of cancer they had. Unfortunately I've also lost family members to Cancer, one being my Grandad (my dad's dad) that passed away in 1976 before any of his grandchildren was born which is what he wanted the most (he has around 16 grandkids and even a few great grandkids now). My other grandad (my mum's dad) had a tumour on his bowel, according to his death certificate it was bowel cancer, it was one of the things he passed away from.

I had a small scare recently myself, abnormal cells from a smear test and referral to hospital ... Had my colposcopy in April, got the all clear, cells had cleared up themselves, not further treatment and smear test in 3 years. I feel incredibly lucky that it didn't turn into anything sinister!

It makes sense to run for this charity, I want to raise funds to help the fight against it ... Science has so far advanced so much they are finding ways of combatting this horrible disease but I would love to hear that one day in the future that there is a cure so no one has to fight it or lose their life to it ❤️

Please dig deep and spare whatever you can for such an amazing charity, let's help eradicate cancer in the future so no-one else has to lose someone they love ❤️

Thank you for reading ❤️🏃🏻‍♀️❤️
