Kimberley’s Race For Life 2019

This will be my 3rd Race For Life, and the 2nd 10K I have done for Cancer Research.

As most of you know, in October 2016, my Dad was diagnosed with a 10cm cancerous tumour in his right kidney. The diagnosis was a complete shock, and the last thing any of us had expected.

My Dad was amazing. He showed incredible strength and bravery from the day of his diagnosis, and continues to do so now. He underwent a radical nephrectomy to renove his entire kidney, and was fortunate enough not to require further treatment.

After his recovery, I vowed to get fit and lose weight. Over the next 18 months, I shed over 6 stones and took up running. I have been at my target weight since May 2018.

I complete Race For Life in honour of my Dad, and to raise awareness of this horrible disease and much needed fundraising for the charity.

Hopefully, one day, no family will go through what my family did. And with Cancer Reaearch and their amazing work, hoepfully that will be one day soon.

Thanks for reading 😘
