My Story

My gorgeous smiling boy was diagnosed with high risk neuroblastoma stage 4 at the age of 16 months. He battled bravely but devastatingly he passed away only 10 days after his 3rd birthday. We are totally lost without our lovely boy who was so caring of others even when in pain. I am doing this walk because if I can do anything to help save another child or family going through this.... Over the past 20 months I've led a very sedentary lifestyle. Sam and I had alot of hospital stays and for the last 6 weeks of his life only really moving between the sofa and bed, cuddling Sam and not wanting to ever let him go. For me, to walk 13 miles is a major challenge but one that I am determined to conquer - and I will! A bright twinkling star ⭐️ will be keeping a watch over us all as we 'Shine for Sam' Each year Cancer Research UK’s scientists get closer to beating cancer, and they’ve helped double survival rates in the last 40 years.
