Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 10k to raise money and save lives.
In July 2017 my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer. With his family and community around him he faced his illness with courage, composure and good humour. I signed up for this race earlier this year to show my support for him. Sadly his cancer was aggressive and on the first of June this year he passed away. I've been touched and humbled by the kindness shown to me and my family in the past few weeks so I've decided to run the race anyway - in the hope that the money we raise will help families like mine face better outcomes in the future.
