I'm walking 10,000 steps a day in aid of Cancer Research!

In memory of

My incredible Nan!

My Story

This March, I'm going to be walking 10,000 steps a day throughout the month to help raise money to beat cancer sooner. My family have suffered massively when it comes to cancer and unfortunately in 2013 my amazing Nan passed away after battling with cancer that had spread after being treated for it years beforehand. She was the most amazing lady I have ever known, so brave and so strong and she fought right until she couldn't anymore. She was and is still loved beyond measure and my family would do absolutely anything to have her back, even if just for a day. The money raised helps go towards funding the research of diagnoses and prevention to the patient receiving the treatment for the cancer. The more money raised, the more likely it is that they will be able to prevent so many people dying for this awful disease and tearing families like mine apart. This is for you Nan, my family that have been diagnosed, my family that have suffered, my family that have grieved and to anyone else out there who is suffering with the heartache of losing a loved one to cancer!
