On Friday night, my amazing Nan passed away. I can't explain how much she meant to me. My heart hurts and my life without her in it will never be quite the same. She didn't want to leave us and wasn't ready to go, but Cancer took that away from her. She could have had another 10-15, or even 20 years left ahead of her - to be able to see me get married in July and see me in the wedding dress she has bought me, to watch her great grandchildren grow up, to create more memories together and just to be there for us all as she always was. She really did deserve the very best and shouldn't have been denied those things.
I've decided that in September, I'm going to take part in my first ever race for life (and probably my first race at all, since primary school!!). Whilst I know this won't change what our family, and so many other families, have lost, what else can we do except to try and do all we can to help fund the research into curing this evil, cruel disease. If anyone would like to donate, anything at all, please just follow the link below. I'll be running (and getting super muddy) in honour of the two most amazing, funny, kind hearted, loving and brave Grandparents I ever could have wished for. No one has ever, or could ever, make me feel as loved and adored as they always made me feel. They were our number 1 fans and we were and still are theres. Beyond lucky to have them. I pray and hope more than anything that they are somewhere, together again.
Thanks so much to my amazing friends who have agreed to do this with me, and for all of the friends and family who have just been so kind and lovely to me during the sad and painful few weeks we have had since learning so suddenly that my wonderful Nan would have to leave us. Just letting me rant to you and knowing you're thinking of me, has meant so much. Thank you xxx
