Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I’'ll be exercising every day of the month to raise money for life-saving cancer research, wether it may be a cycle, run or walk. Please show your support and help join the fight against cancer by sponsoring me. Together we will beat cancer.
So here’s a little bit about my story -
I am Chloe I am 22 and my family has been cruelly shaken by this illness twice.
In 2017 we lost who my mums side of the family called “the rock” the man who kept our family together and strong at our weakest points in life. Our friend, our shoulder to cry on, a loving dad & husband, an amazing grandfather & great grandfather, brother, uncle etc. From a young age I spent a lot of time with my grandad, taking me to nursery and school when my parents were working, taking me on holidays abroad and in the uk. Making me smile and laugh at times I thought I couldn’t, telling me to pull my socks up and stop crying. Coming out with his funny nicknames like “mushy peas”. There was and never will be someone quite like him in our lives ever again. There are holes in our hearts that can never be filled because of an illness that needs to be cured, an illness that surely someone out there is able to find just a minuscule of information that could save the approximate 1,620 people per year that sadly lose their lives to this such cruel illness. This is why I am raising money to continue like many people to raise money for this vital research that hopefully one day can stop this for good.
In 2018 my Gran on my dads side was diagnosed with ‘lung cancer’ and I guess you can call her ‘the rock’ on this side of the family too. A down to earth woman who is funny, intelligent worked every day of her life up to retirement and even then didn’t want to stop, a woman who is kind and would do anything to make people feel secure and happy. A woman who will go out of her way to make someone smile or laugh, even a stranger. A woman who I will always look up to and hope to be somewhat like in my future. My grans fight with cancer is still on going and we can only pray that as strong as she is, she can fight this! In fact, we know she can! This charity cannot continue to fund their research without us and that’s why I ask just a small favour, even £1 is something- please donate. There are so so many family’s who this illness rips apart in fact I would probably imagine 90% of us have been through some sort of pain caused by this in our lives and if you haven’t then I would call you somewhat “lucky”.
Thank you so much for reading my story, I hope you find it in you to donate even something as little as £1. I understand that my fundraising activity is not something out of the ordinary but it is something that will be challenging for me, especially on those “sluggish sundays!” But I guess we all face challenges and some more devastating than others. Thanks again!
