I'm walking 10,000 steps every day this March for Cancer Research UK.

Where do I start...

So when back in November i took not well it all came as a total shock! It all started with a pain on the right hand side part of my stomach just underneath where my appendix scar is. The pain was so intense that I had to go down to my GP for an emergency appointment and from there I was sent directly my to Wishaw hospital for further tests.

After the first tests were completed the doctors were concerned that it was cancer due to the size of both my ovaries but without a biopsy they couldn’t really be sure!

I was distraught. For the first time in my life I did not know where to turn what to think what to do...when the word cancer is thrown in the mix you immediately think the worst. I became a ghost of myself. I couldn’t deal with simple things plus I was very low, had no energy and just did not want to do anything!

I went in for my first operation a week after I took not well. After a four hour operation they managed to reduce the size of my right ovary but unfortunately due to the time in the operation theatre they had to pull me out. At the beginning of January I went in for a second operation to try and fix my left ovary but because of its size and proximity to major organs they removed it all together.

It was such a surreal experience! But with the help of family friends and my work I was able to get through the darkest of times! Even social media had a big part to play in my recovery.

There were times when all I wanted to do was sleep and not see anyone. But I was ‘forced’ out of bed and I was made to do stuff until I stopped feeling sorry for myself and I got back into a routine!

Only this week I found out that I am cancer free. I think it was one of the best days of my life...I cried with joy and it felt like a massive weight was lifted off my shoulders!

I never thought about cancer before probably because it’s never touched me or my family directly but having gone through this experience and having suffered a lot both physically and emotionally I do feel that it’s good to talk & raising awareness on the subject it’s definitely a starting point.

It is for this reason that all through March I pledge to walk 10,000 steps each day for cancer research to raise funds & why not...in the process get fit too!

So please donate what you can and join me in my walks throughout March. Let’s walk chat have a good time and raise money to a worthy cause.

Love Dani ❤️❤️❤️
