In 2014 my Nan was diagnosed with liver cancer, and after various treatments it was deemed that there was nothing more they could do in July 2016. On the same day, my Gramps was diagnosed with lung cancer. This was a hard time for our whole family.
I helped by taking my Gramps to his chemotherapy treatments.
In December 2016, my Nan sadly passed away in her own bed, after deteriorating in her final two weeks with us. Exactly a week later my Gramps also left us. Even though he had cancer, we know he died of a broken heart.
I am doing Race for Life for them, to give something back in their memory and to thank those who cared for them during their illnesses.
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and save lives.
