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

We lost our beautiful daughter on her 21st Birthday on 21st February 2017, to a Brain tumour with very little warning and little chance to say goodbye. 2 years previously I lost my close friend Rosemary. I need to do something in remembrance of these 2 much loved and daily missed angels, so with Olivia's friends Emma and Emma and Rosemary's daughter Gemma we will be running the race for life.
Olivia ran the race in 2016 in memory of Rosemary
and she gave her services to the Hospice shop in Colchester in the same year. She was passionate about doing something for cancer sufferers and this is my chance to keep her mission going.
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.
