I'm running Race for Life because Cancer Research really do make a difference

In memory of

Jane Squirrell

9th Jan 1955 - 6th Sep 2015

My Story

As most of you know I lost my brilliant Mum in 2015. She was a regular Race for Life runner including just months before she died. I’ve been amazed by the support I’ve received each year for doing Race for Life, it really means a lot. Mum was an incredible women. I miss her everyday. I wish she had been here to support me through the tough times I’ve been through recently, I know she would have had a lot to say on the matter! Mostly I wish she was here to see Alfie growing up and witness his amazing sense of humour. Alfie’s going to join us on the race for life this year, in memory of ‘Gran Dog’. They both have a love of pink and he’s very excited to wear his new pink tshirt! Mum had a rare type of womb cancer, which unfortunately resisted all the treatment and drugs thrown it's way. She was part of a clinical trial funded by Cancer Research at the Royal Marsden in London. Although the treatment didn't work for mum we did hear success stories - proof that these trials do work and that the work Cancer Research is doing is so important.
 So if you can, please help to remember mum and sponsor me. I know I've left it a little late but lets try and beat last years incredible total! PS - In case you're wondering about the slightly odd photo choice - this was an amazing day I'll never forget. Dad and I bought mum a army vehicles experience day - she got to drive a hovercraft!! xx Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives. 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now. Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Cancer Research UK.
