My Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. Both my parents have had Cancer, my Mum was diagnosed with Leukaemia in 2003 and my Dad had Prostate Cancer in 2014. Earlier this year a close friend of mine was diagnosed with Cancer. I've seen firsthand what people go through and I want to help. I've done this event many times but as I face the Race for Life this year I am older, wider (yes I have spelt that right) and nursing a three year old knee injury. I’m trying to do my bit to raise some money to help fund research to find a cure. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
