Cancer is happening right now, which is why we taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.
We as a family will be running for the first time together. Recently we lost a much beloved family member, 'Uncle Norman' (Normski). Norman died after a short illness at the age of 61 from Cancer of the Oesophagus. Also my father in law has since been diagnosed with stomach cancer. Ivon, 'Frankie' we call him, has recently had an operation to remove his tumour and is responding well to his treatment and recovering well. We don't know as of yet if he is cancer free as we are waiting further test results etc. We are keeping everything crossed and hoping for positive news. I also lost my father to lung cancer when he was only 52 and my aunty died of breast cancer at a young age too. Cancer has also taken good friends of ours over the years and we have friends now who have this awful disease.
Therefore that is why, as a family Cliff Samuel Sean and I will be running the Race for Life in June in memory of loved ones lost and to also run in solidarity for all the thousands of people who have lost loved ones or have been affected by this terrible disease.
