In memory of

My Papa - William Smith Gray & Gran - Marion Gordon Gray

My Story

Today, September 2nd, would have been the wedding anniversary of my Gran and Papa. My grandparents spent countless hours helping to raise me and teaching me life lessons around the clock. They were two of the most important role models in my life and constantly put themselves before me and family. In 2018 my Gran passed away and although not with cancer, she witnessed some of her closest relatives battle with it and eventually lose their battle, from her mum to her brother. Last year after a long fight with Lung Cancer my papa passed away and this broke the family - leaving a gap within all of us. This October I’m doing a 5k in memory of my grandparents and in the idea to raise money for Cancer Research. They provide exceptional care for those fighting cancer and those bereaved by the loss of loved ones Any donations would be greatly appreciated. Together we will beat Cancer.
