I'm taking on a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and help beat cancer!

I’m racing for life for my mum.

On 14th February I heard the heartbreaking news that my mum had noticed a change to one of her breasts. She was diagnosed with breast cancer just a week later and our world was turned upside down. Mum had a mastectomy and had some lymph nodes removed to get rid of the cancer. Sadly as she has an aggressive type of cancer, she’ll have to undergo chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormone treatment too. My mum is only just beginning her journey with chemo. As a 20 year old I still live with my mum and rely on her for pretty much everything. This makes it hard for me as I’m used to seeing her getting on with her normal life - working, eating, sleeping, socialising etc. But as her chemo begins I know she’ll feel more tired and be able to do less, this will be the hardest. Not seeing my beautiful mum be able to do the things she enjoys like sitting in a beer garden with my dad on a sunny day because she feels too poorly or going for nice meals because she doesn’t have an appetite. I know she’ll have good and bad days and I’ll be there supporting her all the way.
Sometimes you just need a cuddle from your mum and for her to tell you it’s all okay but I’ll have to be the strong one!!

I consider my mum as one of the lucky ones as she found the cancer before it was too late. I still have my mum in my life but not every family is as fortunate. This is why race for life is such an important cause. Beating cancer can be helped by a lot of research which needs funding. That’s why every penny counts.

I appreciate any donation you can make, please help where you can x
