I lost my lovely Dad 10 years ago after an extremely short battle with cancer due to a very late diagnosis, by then there really wasn't anything they could do. If his diagnosis had been earlier who knows...but the prognosis could have been very different and he'd have been able to enjoy a good few more years with us.
I also lost my mother-in-law to cancer after a long and often quite painful battle, for both her to go through, and those who loved her to see.
Cancer is still happening right now, but vital research continues to try and find a cure, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to help raise money and save lives.
