My Story

I’ve done this race a few times, one time I did this race for life I had my mum solidly by my side. We did it together, we did it to celebrate her keeping cancer at bay and feeling like we had got on top of the cancer, we felt like we were winning.. My mum used every fibre in her body to beat it, but it didn’t happen. She fought for 6 years. We made so many memories in that time. She laughed, she smiled and she joked her way through from start to finish. On 29th December 2021, she was taken from us. I hate that she’s not here, I struggle with her not being here. She was my rock, my friend, but most of all my mum. I miss her with every fibre of my body. I would do anything for one last smile, laugh, hug. Cancer ripped away any future memories I could have made with my mum. I hate cancer, I hate what it has done and what it is still doing to people. If I could just make a difference to one persons life by raising a bit of money in my mums name, I will. If my mum taught me anything it was you only live once, love your life, make a difference while you can. It’s not going to change the world, but one step at a time, one person at a time, we can all help.
