As a current survivor of breast cancer I really understand the personal effect it has on your life and your family. The mental and physical strains are really hard to deal with at times. I am so lucky to have had such fantastic support from my family and great friends who have helped me cope with the ups and downs that this awful disease gives you.
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k 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.
