I’m taking part in Shine Night Walk to help beat cancer

This will be my 9th walking marathon but this one is very personal. 2 years ago my dad totally out of the blue was diagnosed with bladder and prostrate cancer. 2 bladder tumours have been removed and he is currently being managed with BCG and hormone treatment for the prostrate. He deals with all of his treatment with a great sense of humour and a very positive attitude and he has a great zest for life.

During this time my brother was found to have pre-cancerous cells from a skin biopsy. He has been successfully treated, but in December 2018 my mum was diagnosed with non Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

She has now had small bowel resection, tumour removal and 6 rounds of chemo and is now in remission, but it has been really tough supporting both parents through treatment and facing my own fears and worries - is it me next?

Cancer has always terrified me and the whole diagnosis and treatment is a roller coaster for everyone involved. I have now been supported with on going counselling from Macmillan Service who have been amazing and a really helping me deal with some of my issues and anger. This walk is my way of giving something back, getting fit (well fitter), building camaraderie with the team and importantly raising money to kick cancers butt.

Survival rates for many types of lymphoma has increased significantly – now, twice as many people survive non-Hodgkin lymphoma as in the 1970s. And four out of five people will survive Hodgkin's lymphoma, compared to fewer than half of patients in the 1970s. Help Cancer Research UK improve effective treatments and survival with your donation.
