I was named after my Great Aunt, Iris Rose 🌹, who died from cancer before I was born. My mum had breast cancer in 2017 and is cancer free. Our friend Jean had cancer but is now cancer free. One of the science teachers who taught my sister had a brain tumour. We remember and honour him with a mile run every year since his death. My Aunt’s dad died last November after a cancer diagnosis. It’s a cruel disease and is happening right now, affecting too many people, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy 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.
