I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

Dad x

17 May 1952 - 29 Jun 2010

Let's do this! Anyone who knows me will know this is a massive thing for me to do as I dislike any form of exercise. However this is important and so I, accompanied by my little Lola, will be taking part in Race for Life 2018.

This June will be 8 years since cancer took my daddy away. He was 58. He wasn't unwell for long; diagnosed on 20th May 2010 (my 21st birthday) and passed away just over a month later on 29th June.

17th June is father's day and instead of sitting at home feeling sorry for myself, this will be how I celebrate my dad this year.

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.
