I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

Margaret Walker and Alie McCartney

I am running the race for life for three amazing women.

My Grandma Margaret who lost her battle with cancer in 2014. Once diagnosed she only had months to live. I miss her everyday. She was not only my Grandma but my best friend.

My Auntie Alie who also lost her battle in 2014. She fought and fought right until the end and was so brave throughout. We were so close when I was growing up - she was more like a big sister. I miss her so much.

My Auntie Viv. An amazing woman in so many ways. She is such a loving person who would do anything for her family. She lives life to the full and is just beautiful inside and out. She was given the all clear in February 2018...she kicked cancers ass!

I'm also running for all of my wonderful friends who have been affected by cancer.

Please sponsor me...I hate running 😂 but really want to do this 😁 especially as the money I raise is going to fund research to save more lives. 1 in 2 people are now diagnosed with cancer 😭
