I'm not much of a runner (never run) but I want to challenge myself and help beat cancers arse.!

In memory of

Trudie, mum, gran

Cancer is a bastard and I've have people in my life who have had the unwelcoming battle with it. Some have won but sadly some have lost. My mum was part of the lucky group who can now look at cancer as a thing of the past and I'm greatful everyday to still have her. Unfortunately on the 29th of April cancer claimed the life of a dear family friend only 50 years old. Trudie was such a character and could always make people laugh. Im doing this challenge as I want to help beat cancer and to stop it taking amazing people so soon and leaving families heartbroken!
Please donate to help those currently facing the battle and to stop more from suffering in the future.

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k 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.
