I'm taking on a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

Beverley Padfield - My Mum

In 2007 my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer, after going through many operations, chemo and radiotherapy we thought she'd beaten it. Four years later we were devestated to find out that the cancer had returned, this time in her pancreas. The prognosis was poor and she passed away within 6 months. Losing my mum has been the hardest thing i've had to overcome and even now i find it hard to deal with. I not only lost my mum, but my bestfriend and my children will grow up without knowing her, which breaks my heart.

We all are fully aware of the heartbreak cancer causes. Both my dad and brother are carriers of the BRCA2 gene, which increases their risk of developing certain cancers. It is incredibly important to me that treatments and cures are found so that having these gene mutations and being diagnosed with cancer doesn't feel like it's the end of the world.

I know that 5k doesnt sound much, but for a non-runner and someone who is not a fan of mud it's a big deal. Also with it being the day after the anniversary of my mum passing away i couldn't think of anything more appropriate. Anything that you can spare would be very very much appreciated, thank you.
