I am taking part in the Race for Life Pretty Muddy 5K in May 2020. I am doing this in memory of two very important people in my life, who lost their fight.
Three years ago my dad lost his fight to cancer. This was just 5 days after my wedding, which he was not able to attend because he was so poorly. There isn’t a single day that goes by when I don’t miss him and wish I could talk to him.
Last year, my beautiful friend and colleague, Lynda Spargo also passed away after a long fight for her life. Lynda was my work mum. She supported me in my first year of teaching so much. Any single thing I needed help with, Lynda would be there and I wish I let her know how much this meant to me.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Almost every single one of us is affected in some way.
I am taking part in the Race for Life Pretty Muddy 5K to raise some money to get that statistic to a better place.
People should not be losing their loved ones to such a cruel disease.
