On 15th March 2016, I was diagnosed with the most aggressive form of breast cancer. For a while, my world stopped turning. I had watched my mother die of cancer, and now I faced the battle myself.
I went through 8 rounds of intensive chemotherapy, followed by 2 major surgeries. I don't know what I would have done without the unwavering love and support of my family and friends.
Today, I am clear of cancer! I owe my life to the treatment I received. Cancer Research really does matter, and I am living proof that their work really does save lives.
I am still recovering from my treatment and therefore am not yet up to doing 10k, but I want to do something constructive for this amazing charity. Whatever you can afford to give would be hugely appreciated. Below is some further information on cancer and donating:
