I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer sooner. Cancer destroys so many lives and anything I feel like i can do to help I will.

In memory of


Cancer took away my opportunity to meet my grandparents. Cancer took away the kindest man to grace the planet, my Dad’s best friend. And now it’s taking a mother, sister, wife and Nanny- my Nanny. I’ve been lucky enough to spend 18 years with my Nanny and unfortunately cancer is preventing me from spending much more time with her. It has this power to take over the minds and body’s of its victims and leave behind broken families. It leaves people an empty shell of who they previously were. It takes away a persons ability to do something they previously loved, and in the case of my Nanny that’s just about everything. I’ve been lucky enough to share my life with my Nanny, spending countless weeks with her in Devon. She’s watched me progress through school, seen my prom, celebrated with me at my result day, congratulated me at passing my driving test and has in more recent months supported me in my applications for university- these are all experiences and memories I will cherish. However, I can’t help but hate cancer for preventing my cousins from having the opportunity to share the experiences I have had with Nanny, when it comes to them reaching these milestones in the future, and this is what will drive me in my fundraising and motivate me whilst running. Cancer is something that affects too many people and takes away too many people before their time; and I can’t think of at least one person that doesn’t know someone who hasn’t been effected by cancer. It’s time to stop cancer. Please help me in my journey, into helping towards making sure no one else has to suffer.

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.
