I'm taking on a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

My dad Peter and brother John

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy on the 1st of June. Most people who know me know that I lost my dad in my teenage years to cancer and most recently my brother to the same cancer. I know first hand what cancer can do to a family during diagnosis, treatment and in my case, sadly the death of loved ones. The sad fact is that as the statistic is now that every 1 in 2 will be affected by cancer I'm hoping to raise awareness and support. I know people who are currently fighting against cancer but still have to raise children, go to work or are pick up the pieces when loved ones pass away, so even though finding a cure is the ultimate goal, the money we raise right now does so much more for these cancer fighters, family and friends. Even a £1 donation would make it worth while for me. Thank you even if you can't donate please send your support that I don't break every bone in my body and do them proud 🤞
