I’m raising as much as I can to beat cancer

In memory of

Mum, Uncle Gerald, John Jones

Unfortunately, not many families escape cancer.
25yrs ago, I lost my lovely Mum, Hazel. A few years later, my wonderful Uncle Gerald and then last year my good friend John Jones...all to cancer. 😡😡😡
I miss them all daily. ❤️❤️❤️

So....I’ve decided to try and raise money for Cancer Research UK, by running the terrifying 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿Dragon Back Race 2021!
This involves running the length of Wales, over the mountains, in 6 days!!
At the moment I’m feeling completely out of my league, but I’m training steadily and I’ll hopefully get to the start line in September.
Exciting and terrifying!!
....one step at a time!! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🏃‍♀️🏔

We have 4,000 reasons to believe we can beat cancer; that’s how many smart minds are working in the best research facilities across the country to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat this disease.

When you support Cancer Research UK, you are not only funding research into life-saving discoveries, kinder treatments and ways to educate people about lifestyle choices, but you are also helping to keep loved ones together for longer, see people reach milestone birthdays and bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

With one in two of us likely to be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetimes, our research is vital. Cancer Research UK is the only charity to research all 200 cancer types without government funding.

Support like yours ensures we can continue our work, bringing about more breakthroughs, more treatments and more cures than ever before.

Everything we achieve for our life-changing research is thanks to the generosity and dedication of our volunteers. Simply put, we could not achieve these breakthroughs without your support.

You don’t have to wear a lab coat to beat cancer.
