Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 10k 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.
I was naive to think my life wouldn't be affected by cancer, and even when my uncle was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer last Summer, I wanted to believe that he would get better and that all the treatment he underwent would cure him. I didn't really think about the possibility of him not being able to beat the cancer and assumed he'd get better. I didn't want to believe that it was taking over his body and that he was getting progressively worse.
I still find it hard to accept that he is no longer here and deeply miss his sense of humour and funny mannerisms.
My uncle Mark put up a bloody good fight right up until the end and I want to share the same fighting spirit in beating cancer sooner and to prevent other families from losing a loved one to this disease.
This one is for you uncle Marky.
