Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and save lives.
My mum was diagnosed with ovarian cancer when I was 6 months old. Unfortunately it was too late to help.
She was told she had a mere 6 months to live but didn't want to say goodbye without seeing her little girl start school.
My mum made it to remission when I was 2, but unfortunately it came back again. She made it to a week before my 5th birthday.
October 23rd 2001, I'll never forget. That's the day my angel gained her wings and her eternal peace.
I'll do everything within my power to spread awareness and raise as many pennies as possible to prevent further people going through the pain me and my family have been put through.
