Cancer is all around us. Almost everyone knows someone that has fought or is fighting this horrible disease or even worse, they have lost someone to it. Whenever I hear of someone being diagnosed my heart breaks but nothing could have prepared me for the news that my amazing mum was starting her very own fight. It has been a tough few months but fingers crossed the news will be good at the next appointment.
My mum is my rock when things get hard and there has been little I could do to help her through the operations and treatment so when she asked me if I would walk this part of her journey with her, I jumped at the chance.
I am hopeful that one day there will be a cure but until then, one step at a time I will do what I can to support my mum and all other survivors and that is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.
