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

In memory of

my nan, Mary

07 Jun 1940 - 03 May 2018

Last year I lost a very special person to cancer. My Nan. She was someone I looked up to from a very young age. Her sense of humour was one of the best things about her, even in her darker days when things were harder for her, she continued to make us all laugh. My nan was such a lovely person, from family to her friends, to just people she would say hello to on the way to the shop, no one had a bad word to say about her. For me, I have lost my best friend, she taught me so much throughout my life, and helped me become the person I am today, I am so ridiculously proud to have called her my nan. Coping in my day to day life since she passed away has been difficult, since she is someone who I spoke to nearly every single day. Grief is different for everyone and there is no real way to get over it but I am doing this run in memory of her, and everyone else who has had the unfortune of watching a loved one pass away due to cancer or is dealing with cancer themselves. Any donation would be much appreciated x
