Harry wanted to do something to raise money for a cancer based charity, so this year, he’s taking on a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money to beat cancer sooner!

In memory of

Grandad Mick

01 Nov 1943 - 17 Aug 2016

Harry is 9, when he was 5, his best friend was diagnosed with cancer. His best friend was his Grandad Mick. From the day he was born, he was Grandads lad, they had a beautiful bond. Grandad Mick was diagnosed with a mastic brain tumour on June 1st 2015, everyone’s lives changed that day. Over the next months, Harry was by his side daily, they really were best friends. My heart broke the day that he begged me for a Drs kit, because ‘I’m going to make Grandad better’ he said. We had 14 months with my Dad from his diagnosis, to his passing on 17th August 2016. Harry had to see his Grandad deteriorate and saw how cruel cancer is. We were all left broken by my Dads passing, but we speak about him daily and keep his memory alive. When Harry spotted the advert on TV for the race for life to raise money to help beat cancers, he said ‘mom, sign me up’ and here we are. So long story short, if you could sponcer Harry, we would all be so very grateful, anything at all, would mean the world to us, but especially Harry! X
