I'm taking on a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money to beat cancer

In May 2019 I was given the news that no one ever wants to hear. I was told there was a strong possibility that I had ovarian cancer. Following an operation to remove the tumour, the diagnosis was confirmed and my life turned upside down. Suddenly I wasn’t Lucy anymore, I was Lucy the cancer patient. I had to undergo further surgery, and as my tumour was incredibly rare, I was referred to a specialist centre.

The fantastic work of everyone involved in my care, and the knowledge obtained through research means that for now surgery has been the only treatment I have needed.

The work that Cancer Research UK does literally saves thousands of lives. The money that you donate will too. One day I hope we’ll reach the point that a cancer diagnosis is as treatable as a cold. One day I hope we reach the point where cancer isn’t a big scary word that no one can bear to even think about. One day I hope we’ll reach the point where a 22 year old doesn’t have to sit in a doctors office and have her world tipped upside down.

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. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
