We see the devastating effects that cancer has on people all around but you never think the dreaded ‘C’ would happen so close to home.
When I lost my Grandmother to ovarian cancer in 2003 it was completely and utterly heartbreaking but nothing could prepare me for the day my own mum was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer, a stomach churning diagnosis that has completely turned our world upside down and made the fight against cancer even more personal!
This race is not only to raise money for cancer research but also to raise awareness. My Mum’s tumor was missed on her mammogram but her persistence to have further tests led to this diagnosis.
She has been so brave and positive throughout this journey and is still making everyone laugh, without this attitude from her things would have been 100 times harder.
Please sponsor me and help towards kicking cancer in the backside!!!
Cancer is a disease that effects so many people in so many ways. Over the years I have experienced all varieties of cancer with loved ones & friends, people lost & people who have gone through the trauma & pain of the road to recovery. Sadly, we do not yet have a cure, but the money we raise can help fund research into possible cures, or at least help to innovate less painful treatments.
I am running race for life with one of my dearest and closest friends, who has had to witness her own family experience the heartbreak that is cancer. Cancer is something that touches all of us, even indirectly. It can be dark, it can destroy our morale, ourselves and worse than that our hope. While I can’t prevent people from having to experience this horrible disease, I like to think that any money raised will help lessen the pain, brighten the day and bring back the hope!
Please please sponsor us to help fight the dreaded ‘C’.
Cancer is happening right now, which is why we are taking part in a Race for Life 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.
Thank you for your support, we are both so grateful and will keep you posted along the way. For those who wish to laugh at us as the “double act”, feel free to come and support us in person but we have one request, put the champagne on ice and have it ready to pop at the finishing line :)
