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

In memory of

My Dad, Graham Robinson

12 Aug 1953 - 01 Dec 2017

My Dad, Graham, was such a wonderful and caring man. Some of you may have been lucky enough to meet him and even hold a conversation with him. I am lucky enough to call him my Dad. Dad loved Rugby, Cars, Trains, but most importantly he loved and cared about his family.

In October 2015, my Dad was diagnosed with Kidney cancer. This was a big shock to the system and I thought that it would be curable. After 2 brutal years of chemotherapy and watching my Dad become frail, he lost his battle. His kidney cancer had turned Metastatic, meaning that it spread to other organs. Dad passed away with tumours in his lungs and liver whilst also being on his kidneys.

Just over a year has passed since Dad's death and I finally feel strong enough to be able to talk about it and to take part in the Race for Life with my friend Ruth, who I have known for a very long time.

My Dad made a difference to so many people's lives and I want to raise money and support a charity who helped him and will go on to help so many more people.

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.
