In 2004, my uncle lost his battle with prostate cancer, with my great uncle being diagnosed with throat cancer just 12 months later. In 2006, I decided to take on my first race for life and I haven't stopped running or raising money since.
Since signing up to do the race this year, I have lost someone very close to me. Susan is my boyfriend's mum and was one of the bravest people I know. She fought and beat bowel cancer 5 years ago, but in January was told she had ovarian cancer. She fought hard for 5 months, but on May 16th she fell asleep, leaving a huge void in so many lives. This year I am running for her and ask for your help in raising as much money as I can.
