I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer sooner and end the suffering. Donate. Change a life.

In memory of

Nikki Braterman (formerly Pierce)

29 Aug 1969 - 15 Mar 2015

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. Parents, carers, children, teenagers, friends. You never see it coming.
I lost my mum to a rare type of blood cancer (acute myeloid leukaemia to be exact) at 8, too young to understand what was happening. Many people suffer dramatic losses or are lost to this deadly disease. I don't want that to continue.
Already we have made great discoveries, and I know we'll get there one day. But you can make that change; it could be 2035, not 3520, with your help. That's why I'm doing the race for life. I want a world full of love and happiness.
This year, my mum would have turned 50 and I will start the journey that is my teens. I really want to honour her and the moments we've lost, but I also want to honour the other victims, and those amazing people that are cancer survivors.
There are many moments with her I've missed, but it's also been hard for my younger brother. He only knew her five short years and has few memories of her. There shouldn't be children carrying an adult's burden, but it shouldn't be an adults burden either. Help me make this change.
This is for everyone who has, had or died from cancer. But don't forget those people who have been told it's in their DNA. You'll be alright.
