Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life to raise money and save lives. I will be running for my incredible auntie Cynthia, who sadly lost her battle with cancer earlier this year.
Throughout my life there has always been someone I care for fighting Cancer. This is the same for so many, with studies showing that 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. This has inspired me to pursue a career in oncology nursing, and I am due to qualify with a job at The Christie hospital later this year.
Just over a month ago I lost someone very close to my heart. Four years ago my auntie was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, she put up the strongest fight to reach remission, but sadly relapsed last summer, and a few weeks ago left us for a more peaceful place.
Currently there is no cure for MM, but with the help of Cancer Research UK's groundbreaking work we can aim to find one.
Any amount makes a difference, so please donate to this amazing cause which is very close to my heart. Thank you, Katie x
