On 15th March 2016, my aunt Jean sadly lost her battle with cancer. Jeanie, my Mom’s sister, was an integral part of our family. What Jeanie lacked in height (only 4’6!) she more than made up for in warmth, laughter and integrity. Jeanie was diagnosed with cancer in early February after multiple trips to the doctor with abdominal pain. She sadly passed away only 6 weeks later, leaving behind a brand new grandson she never met and another due in a matter of weeks.
We now feel the time is right to do something special in memory of Jeanie. This year, myself and my Mom will be running the Solihull Race for Life on Sunday 17th June. We hope to raise money for cancer research to support families and individuals battling cancer.
