The day I decided to sign up for the race for life was 34 years to the day my grandad died of cancer. I never got the chance to meet him and I couldn't believe it when my Dad told me as it made me feel a sense of closeness to him, it makes getting pretty muddy worth it even more!
I never got to meet Grandad Letchford because of cancer and if doing this race means that someone else gets to watch their children or grandchildren grow up then I'm all for it!
A few years ago I really got to see what a horrible disease cancer really is and how it took away my step Grandad Colin.
Luckily more recently when my third Grandad King got diagnosed with cancer he was able to get treatment and has now got the all clear!
I'm raising money so that treatments can improve even more and there can be more success stories of people beating cancer!
