1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
Some of us are blessed to never experience Cancer with a loved one.
I ran this race couple years ago, as a method to say fit. Who knew 5 years down the line I’d be running this race in memory of some very important people in my life.
I have never shared how any of this has affected me personally and that’s probably because I’ve wanted to stay strong for the people around me. So the only way I can do express for now, is to simply do a run.
Friends and family have spoken to me about their loss and all I can say is “I’m so sorry”
Cancer isn’t friendly, cancer was and is very evil. It crept up out of nowhere, and took away the smile of not just the person affected but the people around.
It’s hard to lose someone you care about.
Cancer has no age, but it still had no mercy on the soft souls that were once here.
For the ones who lost someone to Cancer, for the ones who still don’t know how to speak on their grief, for the losses I still don’t know of, this run is on behalf of you.
This run is in memory of 2 wonderful women that who touched so many hearts and lives (including mine), Aunty Zarah Kadi and Aunty Margaret Peacock (both are mother figures to many of us)
This run is to raise awareness, this run is to show my support. This run is to show you are not alone.
United we stand. Divided we fall. Just one small step at a time, all we can really do is try to be there for one another.
