The reason behind why I'm doing the 10k pretty muddy race for life is back in 2013 my cousin Emma was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Emma had all the treatment they could offer her which put Emma in to remission, sadly last year Emma got told her brain tumour has come back
and is still fighting it.
I will also be doing the race for life for my brother in law Neil who in September 2016 found a lump in his neck while shaving about the size of an egg. Neil left it for a few days thinking it would go away which in fact it didn't so off to the doctor he went for some test then the Royal Glam hospital for some more test and ended up having operation to remove the salivary gland then to be told 6 day later yes it was cancer and was then operated on For 5 hours to remove all lymph nodes and muscle in that area.
Neil is now a 1 year free from cancer!! Go Neil!!!
I would also be doing doing this for my gramp who’s beaten cancer twice❤️
Another reason behind me doing it is in memory of Ann Brown a family friend who we lost sadly to cancer in 2016 and also my best friends nan Jasmine Wells who also sadly passed away.
