I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

Cancer research is a charity very close to my heart, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.

1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Cancer can affect anyone at anytime, this is a fact that has become very clear the last couple of months. I will be doing this walk for my Dad - diagnosed in December 2018 with renal cancer, my dad and those close to him have all felt the burden cancer brings. He is the most unselfish person anyone could ever meet, he would do absolutely anything for anyone and yet this is the card he's been dealt. After having the operation to remove the kidney, secondaries have formed on his lungs - sadly they are terminal. However, for the time being they are stable! And that's why I want to do this, so that more research can be funded to help people like my dad to live for longer and still have amazing and fulfilling lives, even tho they have the condition. Any money you can spare is greatly appreciated :)
