I'm taking part in Race for Life because I can now walk enough to raise money to beat cancer sooner.

In memory of

My Dad and Mum and all my friends and family affected by cancer

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.
