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

In memory of

Elaine Lucy Wood

My husband nick lost his mum to bowel cancer when he was 13, his brothers steve and rich were only 9 & 4 😢
3 young boys had their mother taken from them because of this cruel and aggressive disease.

I will never meet my mother in law and our children will never meet their nan because of cancer.

31 years on my friends sister has been diagnosed with bowel cancer, the same as nicks mum. It’s beyond devastating for any family and heartbreaking to know they still haven’t found a cure for this bitch of a disease!!

We all know of someone who has had cancer, this terrible disease!! The problem is the “people” we know of are getting closer to us and are often family and friends. Statistically 1 in 2 of us will get cancer in our lifetime, this scares the life out of me!!

I can’t cure cancer but I can raise money to continue the research to help find a cure. I’m not a runner (at all!) so please support me in this journey by giving anything you can 😘
