I’m taking part in Shine Night Walk to help beat cancer

In November 2018 we were told that my Grandfather had developed lung cancer (Mesothelioma) caused by working with asbestos for his job over 30 years ago. One lung had succumbed to the cancer and the other lung has signs of it. We were told he had maybe 6-8 weeks left to live. There is no cure for this type of cancer. However, we are now over 6 months on from the initial diagnosis and he is still with us, although with only one operational lung a simple cold makes him very ill. I am walking to raise money for, and awareness of, this type of cancer so no-one else has to see a loved one battle through it.

I am also walking in memory of a girl that went to my school called Julia. She was diagnosed with cancer in the summer before starting secondary school and cancer finally beat her in year 9. Her favourite flowers were daffodils and every spring her tutor group would put them round the school in vases to remember her. Even now when I see a daffodil I remember her despite never talking to her.
