I lost my mum in 2015 to this horrible disease and I Race for Life in the hope that we find a cure.

In memory of

Margaret Dixon

16 May 1946 - 26 Apr 2015

Irene Dixon 76 - Metastatic Ovarian Cancer - 1997 - Gran
Len Prescott 83 - Oesophageal Cancer - 2004 - Grandad
Jessie Prescott 90 - Bladder Cancer - 2012 - Gran
Margaret Dixon 68 - Oesophageal Cancer - 2015 - Mum

I have 4 reasons to Race for life. 4 times Cancer has turned up in my family uninvited and ruined everything. I hate it and I Race for Life in the hope that at some point soon, no other family will ever get that dreadful news.

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.
