My Story

Last year cancer tore my whole world apart, many of you will know it started with my mum, she was diagnosed with bladder cancer and it was so scary, thankfully she had treatment and has recently been told the cancer has still not returned!!! Then it was my turn, skin cancer on my face, I too had treatment and was given the all clear after 2 removals and a scar that will always show my fight. But then October brought the worst news, my pops the best, dad any girl could ask for was diagnosed with lung cancer, on my brothers birthday November 16th 2020 we found out it was terminal and he only had 6/7 months. I became dad's carer and moved him in with me to help his fight and cherish every moment, he walked me down the asile on December 19th 2020 before being taken from us on January 18th 2021 😢 the pain we have felt has been helped by so many charities but this charity is the charity that makes it all possible. I have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and lymphoma, I am fighting and kicking cancers butt, but we need more awareness and more money to make it possible, please anything you can spare makes a difference that is priceless. Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives. 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
