On 21st December 2010, my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. From there, our lives became about surgeries, chemotherapy, growths, tumours, shrinkage, radiotherapy, needles, tablets & PICC lines. A heavy burden for a needlephobe who hated tablets. She rose to every hurdle with courage, strength & oftentimes, comedy. On 21st December 2015, my mym lost her 5 year battle with cancer. She left a devastated family & friendship group.
She shone brightly in life & is my guiding light for anything I do.
I walk for her. For my Grandad Eric. For my Aunty Elaine. For my Great Aunt Sylvia. For Lil Ern. For all those before them & especially those who are yet to come.
