I'm doing Race for Life in memory of my mother-in-law Jean, who had lung cancer. Every day 44 women lose their life to lung cancer - that's more than any other type of cancer and more than breast and ovarian cancer combined.
My sister-in-law and uncle have also had cancer - and are still here, living life to the full. So this is for them as well.
It seemed only right that I should do this Race for Life with some of my female friends who've seen me through a tough time. They'll all have their own stories of losing people to cancer too because it's not fussy about who it picks on. 1 in 2 people will be affected by cancer in their lifetime. Race for Life raises money for research into all 200 types of cancer.
This is our Race for Life.
Cancer - we're coming to get you...
