My Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This January I’m taking on Dryathlon® and raising money for Cancer Research UK. I’ll be ditching the drink for one month to help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. 2 years ago today (27th December) I received a phone call which was going to change everything forever! Mum called me to tell me she had been diagnosed with Breast Cancer for the second time! This felt like I had run head first into a brick wall! Goodness knows how she must have felt bless her! As most of you will know our brave Mum fought this crappy disease head on for over a year undergoing both chemo & radiotherapy, steroid treatments and surgery! Sadly in February Mum couldn't fight anymore and she passed away peacefully at the Pilgrims hospice in Canterbury
