Over the period of 12 years, my Mum was treated for Breast Cancer twice (10 years apart) before being diagnosed with Oesophageal Cancer just after finishing treatment for Breast Cancer for the second time. She received great treatment which unfortunately was not successful and she lost her battle last October in 2018.
Whilst I am gutted that Mum didn’t make it and Cancer deprived her of a relaxing retirement with my Dad and meant she won’t see her grandchildren grow up, I will never forget the amazing strength, humility and humour she displayed during her diagnosis and treatment.
She was always pleased to hear others had ‘fought and won’ and although disappointed that Mum wasn’t as fortunate that I am glad that the following friends have or are kicking ‘Cancer’s Butt’ - Sue, Jane, Janet, Maria and Darren 😊.
I know our family and friends are all affected by Cancer in some way or another...not everyone receives the ‘Big 👍🏻 Thumbs Up’ after treatment...please consider donating to this amazing cause so that we can continue to make progress in the “Fight Against Cancer” and as Maria effectively states “Kick Cancer’s Butt!!!’
Thank you for your support.
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives. I won’t be 🏃🏼♀️ running...as I’m just not fit lol lol but will complete the race at a walking pace...thinking about my Mum, survivors, fighters and those who are unlucky to be diagnosed in the future but whom may be fortunate to “Kick Cancer’s Butt”.
I’m always shocked to think that 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 the team/me now. Thank you all!
