I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer and to say thank you for my treatment

1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. When this fact came onto TV adverts my daughter and I always looked at each other and said, we are 2, which one of us is it going to be! On the first week of lockdown the advertised fact became a reality in our lives as I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It has been a different experience for many people diagnosed with cancer during the pandemic and although treatments have carried on through lockdown, clinics and follow up appointments are either not taking place or are still delayed for months. With these usual supports not there I feel it is even more important to raise the awareness of the impact and reality of cancer and to keep being able to fund further research into life saving treatments. I will find it difficult to go and take part in Race for Life but I am glad to have survived and to have recovered well enough to go. I see taking part as an acknowledgment and a small personal thank you for my treatment. I thought about trying to jog 5K but it might have to be a walk but the reality is that getting out there at all after cancer treatment is a whole struggle in itself so I will be happy even if it is a 5K crawl! I am donating the £50 entry requirement myself so please don't feel it is necessary to donate to my particular page but the page is here if you do want to make a contribution. Thank you for all the support you have given to me and my family. I will be there to take part in some form in Dundee Camperdown Park on Sunday 12 Sep 2021.
