I have a strong connection to cancer through friends and family and even closer to home. The funds we raise will help to increase survival and reduce the impact cancer has on the next generation.
Cancer is happening right now, and I am one of the two people the statistics talk about. It is for this reason among others, that I'm taking part and fundraising the Race for Life 5K. I never thought it would happen to me, but I was diagnosed with rectal cancer about six months ago and have been receiving treatment ever since. I am keen to raise awareness for colorectal cancers as they seem to be at the 'bottom' of the pile, which is a 'shit' place to be I can tell you! Poo seems to be the final taboo and I want people to start thinking brown not pink! I see fundraising for Cancer Research as an investment for our future generations, and my hope is, that for my great nephews, cancer will be a thing of the past. Shit happens and not just to me! So every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work. Please sponsor me now whatever you can afford. Literally every little will help! Cheers!
