Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and save lives.
My Nan was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent a partial mastectomy in the hope of being cancer free. For a short while the out look and prognosis were good. We thought we would have many more years with my Nan. However, the cancer returned and had spread throughout her lungs and spine. My Nan was a strong lady and kept on fighting despite the pain she endured. She was an inspiration and is dearly missed and not a day goes by with out my thinking of her. 💕
Secondly, I do this in memory of my work friend Dotty Di. A remarkable nurse who once gave me some sound advice about juggling monkeys and the usefulness of the highlighter pen. I still look for you in the rainbows 🌈💖
Thirdly, I race to show my support for those still fighting. Be strong, keep fighting and never give in.
