As a family we have been plagued by cancer over the past 6 years especially. We have lost to many already! Uncle Peter, Auntie Maureen and my dearest Mum, not forgetting their dad and my Grandad Lomax.
Some of my closest friends and family will know the agony I have gone through over these horrific years. Cancer really is a horrid disease that affects everyone connected.
I miss my mum every single day it hurts. She was the life and soul of the party and my best friend. There was nothing I couldn't talk to her about. She was the strongest person i have ever known and to watch her go though the mental and physical fight with her illness was the worst and hardest thing I have ever witnessed. So I am running a 10k mud run in memory of her and all those lost along the way. I know she will be there cheering me on in spirit because she is my sleeping angel.
I haven't set a target to raise but would greatly appreciate anything you could give in hope that one day we will beat this thing. I worry mostly for my children, what if I get it? They'll have to watch me like I watched my mum slowly fall victim. Or what if they get it......I can't even go their. So with this in mind and fornthe future generations please give whatever you can.
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.
