In memory of

My mum Eve and my Aunty Linda

Cancer wrecks lives. I know because I lost my wonderful, loving and caring mum to this disease when I was 15. Mum was only 43, fit, healthy and full of life and a mother to three children. My life has never been the same since, although I realise I am one of the lucky ones as I have such a supportive family.

Then only last year, my Aunty Linda who was like a surrogate mother to me in many ways also passed away from cancer, and once again our family was left devastated by this wicked disease.

While you learn to live without the people you have lost, the pain never goes away. All you can do is try to move forward, cherish the memories, and keep your loved ones close in your heart.

I hope that by doing this swim I will be supporting groundbreaking work to prevent other people losing their loved ones to this awful disease.
