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

Some of you may know that 2019 was pretty rough for me and my family…
It was January of that year when I was diagnosed with grade 3 breast cancer, which in itself was the hardest and most scariest thing to have to comprehend - but I was also 4 months pregnant with our baby girl.
My partner, my son and of course my bump made me the strongest I could be during my battle with the Big C and thankfully in May my daughter was born healthy and I have come out the other side too.
After 10 long months with surgery, multiple sessions of chemotherapy and radiotherapy (and giving birth) I am just honestly so grateful to be here.
I owe so much to my family, friends, the hospital staff and of course Cancer Research - what they do is amazing and will touch so many lifes. I will be forever in their debt.
This is why I wanted to run the race for life, to raise money to support such an amazing cause. I know for some it’s not always a positive ending, so the more money we raise the more it can help.
Most people will have friends and family members that Cancer has touched; I’m also running this race for my family, some who are still fighting with great strength and some whose stories sadly had a different outcome. We love and miss you all so much – This run is in your memory too ❤

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.
