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

In memory of

Paul Maxwell Rees, Mary Rees & Gilbert John

Debz and I are doing the race for life in memory of my mum and my brother who both put up one hell of a fight, and my grandfather who died when my mum was only 14 months old. We as a family have inherited FAP. We need a cure, we need to beat cancer. Right now i am 20 days post op and i with my daughters help are going to do this, we are kicking cancers butt!

My Family have FAP Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is an autosomal-dominant colorectal cancer syndrome, caused by a germline mutation in the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene, on chromosome 5q21. There are only 12 famiies in Wales with FAP. It effects many parts of our bodies, I have already lost my large bowel and have a J pouch, i am also waiting to have my duodenum removed as there are polyps that will become cancerous if left alone, I lost my brother to cancer 4 years ago, and 7 months later lost my mum to cancer, my daughter Debz also has FAP. If you could spare some change even if it is just 50p it all helps. Im only doing the 5k and my daughter is supporting me as I have only been out of hospital about 6 days and will be walking it.
