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

So. After a break for a couple of years, I'm back to run (walk?) the Race for Life! Admittedly my knees are not what they used to be but it certainly won't stop me.

Again, for those of you who don't know why I do this, My Mum died from breast Cancer in 1975. She was just 42, I was 11. Whilst my Dad and I just got on with things there have been times in my life when I have really wanted my Mum. When I qualified as a nurse, when my boys were born and all my 'milestone' birthdays! Mum should not have died at 42, my Dad should not have had to bring up a teenage daughter on his own. I would never want anyone to go through what we went through as a family which is why I do the Race for Life and why I encourage everyone to get involved! Run it with me? Or please donate to Cancer Research UK. Come on.......we can beat Cancer together.

Thanks for visiting my Race for Life page. Please dig deep and sponsor me online - it's quick, easy and totally secure.

Events like Race for Life are vital in funding Cancer Research UK's life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer. By sponsoring me, we can unite and create a force that cancer can't ignore.
