Cornwall Pretty Muddy 5k 2018

My Story

In May 2016 I was told I had breast cancer. I was lucky to have an early diagnosis and the tumour was small and hadn't spread. However, I had lobular cancer which is harder to detect than some other breast cancers so the anxiety it created was one of my biggest problems. That's the thing about cancer, there are so many types and some are more aggressive than others. Some are treatable; some aren't. That's why it seems so very cruel. So far mine is a happy story but I have close friends who are/have been affected by the results of aggressive and untreatable cancers. That's why I'm doing the Pretty Muddy Challenge again this year. It's for everyone touched by cancer and hoping research will come up with new and less brutal treatments and maybe even more easy to understand advice on prevention. Thanks for reading. If you are able to donate I'd be grateful. I promise to get as muddy as last year, if not more so :-) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and save lives. 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
