Hi, my name is Katy I'm 43 and I was diagnosed with melanoma 2 years ago but i was one of the lucky ones, mine was caught in the early stages. I believe without cancer research my story could have been a very different one.
My cousin Vicki sadly lost her battle with cancer in December 2017 aged just 43, leaving behind her loving husband and two beautiful children and her heartbroken family.
Vicki's dignity and bravery shone, she lived her life to the fullest and built memories her family will cherish forever but her life was cut far far too short and she will be greatly missed by many.
The care Vicki recieved gave her precious years with her family, modern medicine is amazing but I really believe we all need to play a part in this. We need to save lives together.
