I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to help people beat cancer sooner.
In memory of
My Dad - Leigh McLoughlin
23rd Aug 1954 - 1st Nov 2017
This time last year I didn't have a care in the world. My family were happy and healthy and life was good. Fast forward to September 1st and we received the shocking news that my Dad was sick. Terminal. Unfortunately his cancer was caught too late and Dad lost his battle against malignant melanoma on 1st November. During Dad's illness, I found a lump of my own and just 6 weeks after Dad passed away, following a routine operation, I found myself in familiar territory. Breast Cancer. I was lucky though, my cancer was found at the earliest possible stage. Life has been tough as you can imagine but after having a mastectomy in February I am pleased to say my battle has been won. Cancer hits us when we least expect it, sometimes when we feel we're at our fittest. Cancer is happening right now, to mums, to dads, to our sisters, our brothers, to our children and that is why I'm taking part in this years Race for Life 5k - to raise money and save lives. 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
