Gracie and I are taking part in the Stanborough Park, Welwyn Garden City, Cancer Research UK, Race for Life, 11am on Sunday 3rd June. Cancer is happening right now, which is why we are taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.
This year will be our 3rd year running (excuse the pun 😬). I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in September 2016. Strangely I was lucky in my bad luck as I was diagnosed with Stage 1a ovarian cancer. I’ve always been quite body aware and that meant my cancer was spotted early enough. I had successful surgery and have been healthy since, but I’m always vigilant in keeping an eye out for anything unusual or persistent that might need to be checked and I’m under very close surveillance which is reassuring.
We are doing the RACE FOR LIFE so we can BEAT CANCER SOONER.
Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is a series of women-only events raising money for research into all 200 types of cancer.
To help raise money for the charity Gracie and I will be hosting a Tropic Pamper Party. Purchases can also be made via the website below and all commission from products sold will go to Cancer Research UK.

The more money we can raise, the more funding available for research, the sooner we can beat all 200 types of cancer.
Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer, and each of them have a unique set of circumstances that led to their cancer. There are many things that together affect a person’s chances of developing cancer – some of them can be controlled, some can’t.
Leading a healthy lifestyle is not a cast-iron guarantee against cancer. But it reduces the risk of the disease. If you think about cancer risk like a hand of cards, some people are dealt a worse hand because of their genes, some people a better one.
But in both cases, these people can do things to reduce their individual risk of cancer. So this type of information is crucial in equipping people with the information they need to stack the odds in their favour.
