Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.
My family and friendship group have been touched by cancer. My great uncle and uncle have fought (and beaten) bladder and bowel cancer. My friend Alan lost the fight to throat and bone cancer. My grandfather, aunt and I have all had skin cancer. It's true that everybody knows somebody.
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 if you can spare a donation, please sponsor me now.
