Sadly cancer touches too many lives. Whether you are fighting or have fought it yourself, your friends or relatives are currently battling it or have sadly lost their lives to this horrendous disease.
I have few reasons why I am taking part in Race for Life. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer, I was 28 and my daughter was 6 months old. Thats why it means so much to me to take part in Race for Life especially with my little girl by my side. There is never a day I am not greatful to the NHS and my medical team for saving my life and letting me see my little girl grow up! I broke my ankle on 21st December 2017 and required surgery where they fitted 2 metal plates and 9 screws so even though its only 5k it will be a real challenge!
Cancer has also touched the lives of some people who I will be walking in memory of
💙 Malcolm Low
who fought Prostate Cancer but died of complications caused by radiotherapy.
💗 Lynne Whittaker
who battled Breast Cancer twice 15 years apart.
💛 Maureen Johnson
My amazing friend Laura’s grandmother who fought so so hard but is now her guardian angel
