For all those who have battled, are battling, and will battle in the future. And especially for our lovely Mel, we all miss you.

In memory of

Melanie Barlow

This year, 6 of us have decided to club together and run the 5km Pretty Muddy for Cancer Research in September! Cancer has affected all of us in a variety of ways - 1 in 2 will be diagnosed at some point in our lives. Let’s change these stats!

But I’m tackling this course in memory of our lovely Mel who we lost in 2017 to a rare cancer called ocular melanoma, which begins in the eye. We miss her every single day; she was simply amazing. I see her spirit in her brilliant kids all the time, in recipes she and my mum gathered over the years, in memories of summer BBQs, chats over biscuit decorating and pasta picnics in the garden, and even in our matching sandals!

So instead of spending that £5 or so on a coffee today, it would mean so much to me if you could spare a few pounds and sponsor me. I would hugely appreciate it, and every single penny counts!

Thank YOU so much!
