I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

Recent media coverage has highlighted the fact that the dreaded 'Big C' can affect any of us at any time, but when my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer recently it really hit home and took on a whole new meaning....
Yes I can help with the chores, offer support and encouragement and we are told that the outlook is good. However, seeing first hand the disruption to normal life and the effects that chemotherapy causes which I can do nothing about inspired me to do my own little bit by helping to raise funds in fighting this terrible disease.
Some way off yet, but hopefully one day cures for cancers will be available to all sufferers.
I don't know about RACE for life, probably more of a brisk walk in my case, but any support you can give however small would be much appreciated!

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.
