I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to help beat the awful disease that is cancer sooner, faster, quicker! Please help.

In memory of

Mark Ashley Francis 'Dash'

Mark Francis, my younger brother, was sadly diagnosed with stomach cancer that turned into metastatic cancer last year and lost his battle to this deadly disease aged 29 years old in January 2019. I am doing this not only for him, but for everyone that has already gone through and may go through a fight with this disease throughout their lifetime.

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 and help others that still have the chance.
