I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

My grandmother and Emma Freeborn

Breast Cancer has always been an issue close to my heart and recent events have encouraged me to do the race for life this year.

My next door neighbour Jan and my friend's mum Jane were both diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year and to support them on their road to recovery I have decided to fundraise and do the race for life this year.

My grandmother passed away due to breast cancer before I got the chance to meet her but I know that she was an amazing person and she would have encouraged me to help others with every opportunity that was open to me. Her memory will never be forgotten.

When I was 13, my guide leader, Emma Freeborn sadly passed away due to breast cancer after a seven year fight against it. She was one of the strongest people who smiled through everything and had a positive outlook on everything. She was an inspiration to everyone and raised tens of thousands of pounds throughout her fight. She wanted to show people that they could live a normal life even after being diagnosed with cancer.

1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. I hope that by doing this 10k run, I can raise awareness for a cause that has affected so many people.

Thanks to the fundamental research that is being carried out by Cancer Research we can look forward to a future with a survival rate higher than ever before.
