At the end of November 2019, our world changed, Alison was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer, Like many I thought we would be immune, that cancer happened to other people, not to us, but now its right on our doorstep and the impact is huge.
Thankfully the diagnosis was swift and Alison underwent surgery to remove all visible traces. Hopefully a successful course of chemotherapy will have an equally similar positive result.
But we can't just hope for the best, Cancer is happening right now to thousands across the UK, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy in Windsor as part of a team started by my daughter to raise money for essential research that can truly help save lives.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s ground-breaking work, so please sponsor me now.
