Lily's Race for Life
+ £57.50 Gift Aid
Nottingham 5k 2018
Sun 3 Jun 2018
We are running for more people than we wish was the reality. All our friends and family affected.
In memory of
Our Grandads and Father in Law
Thank you for visiting our page. Lily and I are doing the 5k this year as it is a really valuable and worthwhile event. In addition to helping raise money, the actual event brings together so many people who have been affected by cancer and it is so rewarding to see the survivors and also feel that you are doing something positive. I can take part in this event with Lily today as a result of early detection and treatment for cervical cancer, and am so grateful for the life and opportunity to be a mummy that my successful treatment enabled. I want to help more people have that opportunity. We have lost too many people to cancer, both family and friends. Lily will never know her Grandad Lawrie or Great Grandad "Mr La La" which is such a shame. Both in our family life and my job, I see the devastating effects of cancer on all those it touches. However, I also am seeing how research is enabling more effective treatments and also developing treatments that are less traumatic for patients. Equally, advances in early detection and treatment are helping to find cancer at early stages and greatly reducing the risk and severity of treatment. This has been so evident with my sister in law who through gene testing and early screening has discovered she has breast cancer at a very early stage. She has drastic and difficult surgery ahead, but this will mean she can look forward to a future with her baby son and husband. We are so thankful that this is possible. So...if you are still reading, thank you for your time and if you wanted to donate to our fund raising page that would be great. We know there are so many requests for sponsorship these days, so even if you can spare a couple of pounds that would be amazing. Thank you and Lily and I look forward to our event. 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. Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Cancer Research UK.
