I don't think there any many people out there who have not been affected in some way by cancer. It's probably one of the most frightening words we could ever hear a doctor say. I am setting off my run on the road where my grandma lived. I never met her; she died of cancer the year before I was born. I have known too many people since who have had cancer, some survived and others sadly not.
I will run thinking of them all.
After a year where vital cancer trials have been delayed, the Race for Life is more important than ever.
That's why I'll be taking part in a Very 2020 Race for Life. Every pound you can donate will go towards Cancer Research UK’s ground-breaking work, so please sponsor me today.
I will be running with my friend Kit. I hope we will run together if restrictions allow...
