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

In memory of

My wonderful Dad xxx

12 Jun 1952 - 01 Jun 2013

It is hard to believe it has been nearly 6 years since we lost my amazing Dad to this terrible disease. Nursing him, watching him slip away from us is something I would not wish on my worst enemy. My dad was so strong, even at the end. I miss him every minute of every day and it makes me so sad that he never got to hold his grandchildren, my two daughters and my nephew and niece. My mum is getting on as best she can without her solemate, the person she has been with since she was 15. It wasn't supposed to be like this. My dad dying has left a huge hole in our family and we need to do everything we can to stop this horrible illness.

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 now.
