My life was shattered when my mother was diagnosed with Acute Myloid Leukaemia in 2015 thankfully she responded really well to treatment and entered remission in January 2016. We had an amazing few months of her becoming herself again before cancer struck for the 2nd time in August 2017! This time she was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and within a week it had spread to her brain. It only took 7 weeks from diagnosis to her growing her wings.
For those who know me I am not and never have been a runner but in memory of my mother I have set myself this challenge. 1 in 2 people will get cancer at some point in their lifetime therefore cancer research is very close to my heart x
