I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer sooner.

In October 2018, my beautiful sister was diagnosed with Stage 1B1 Cervical Cancer. Lou underwent major surgery just before Christmas and is doing amazingly. And it was through the amazing NHS service that Lou's life was saved.

To all the women out there, Lou has never missed an appointment for cervical screening. She has been to every one. And she was still diagnosed. If you're overdue your appointment, book it in! Those few slightly awkward and uncomfortable minutes could save your life. They saved my sister's.

I'm running Race for Life for cancer survivors and for all those who have lost their lives to cancer.

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.

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.
