Katie & Becca are taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer and save lives!

My Story

We are taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives. Like most families we have experienced Cancer. In 2007 my sister Becki lost her short battle with breast cancer at the young age of 35. We then discovered that we had the faulty BRCA1 mutated gene running through our family, putting me at very high risk of getting Breast or Ovarian Cancer. Due to cancer research and the Nottingham genetics team I was able to intervene and take all the drastic but necessary preventative measures so hopefully I will now live a long and healthy life! (I hope this helps to raise awareness and illustrates the importance of Cancer Research!) Rebecca and I will be running Race for life for all those affected by cancer, for all BRCA 1 & 2 mutant carriers and for my friend Tracy, so please sponsor us now. Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Cancer Research UK.
