On Christmas day 2017 I could hardly walk. I used a stick when it got tough. I even applied for a blue badge and got one because my mobility was so impaired. On Christmas day 2018 I had lost 6 stone 3lbs and could walk so much better and I will keep going. I always said if I lost enough weight I'd do the race for life in memory of my dad who died of bowel cancer and my mum who had breast cancer. I think my time has come to honour that promise.
Cancer is happening right now, 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. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
