Got the all clear but have complications with my feet and fitness. Want to give myself a challenge.

I had 2 cancers. One in the rectum and also one in the colon. I had chemotherapy which then knocked my fitness, so much in fact that my survival % for the operation was 27%.
I obviously survived the operation. I then had some more chemotherapy which has left me with my fitness levels still low. At the moment I am trying to get my fitness back but then I injure myself so get knocked back!! I also have a sister that is now undergoing chemotherapy for Lung, liver and possibly breast cancer. I am unable to walk too far but I am doing the Race for Life to prove to myself that I that I can do it!! I have another sister and nephew there to help me through it, they may have to carry me over the line but I am determined to cross it!! thank you for all your support. x
