My daughter and I have decided to take part in the Race for Life as it's a great opportunity to raise money and awareness for such a worthwhile cause.
My grandmother suffered from breast cancer and later from cancer of the oesophagus. It was very hard to see her suffer from this disease particularly as she was unable to eat towards the end. She was an amazing lady who battled it with dignity and great strength - she didn't lose her sense of humour and I will always remember her enjoying spending time with my son who was 3 at the time who always brought a smile to her.
Having never been a keen jogger, I have now found that I am thoroughly enjoying it and am training twice a week (with the help of a great friend). I now am able to run about 3 miles - it is proving to be a great challenge but will ultimately benefit from raising money for such a good cause.
