For the last few years, because of my own health issues, I have raised money for Diabetes UK, JDRF, British Heart Foundation & Asthma UK. But this summer, I have decided to do something for a cancer charity, given my family's unexpected experience, when mum was diagnosed and died with ovarian cancer in 2003.
I have seen up close & personal the immense pain, anguish & distress cancer can cause both for people with the disease and for everyone around that person and particularly those closest to them.
So I will be getting lots of walking in, over the summer, to train for this 26+ miles walk around central London, on 21 September 2019. My overall health is bound to throw me a few curved balls along the way, but will aim to keep my blood sugars, lungs and feet in as good nick as possible to successfully complete the course - but am going to need some help and support to get me there - which is where you come in!!
