I'm walking at Shine Night Walk in the fight to beat cancer.

This is my story, the reason I am even throwing myself into this. In 2015 I was diagnosed with Skin Cancer, the worst kind of skin cancer, Melanoma. It was a huge shock and something I still struggle to accept. I was rushed through to have it removed, cleaned up and patched back together, and I am here to tell my story. To bring awareness.

Its hard actually coming to terms with the word cancer. Even though I've overcome it, I still have that fear. My mantra for the last 4 years has been Punch Fear In The Face. Its something I tell myself daily. I won't lie, I am petrified that it could re-occur. Ive been told so many times I'm at a greater risk. Punching Fear in The Face is all I have to scare this horrid disease away.

Its lead me here, to fight more and raise awareness and money to help Skin Cancer research, something I am so so passionate about. I want to raise money to help make a cure for cancer. It rips through families, it doesn't care who it destroys on the way. If I can help in someway to get that bit closer to curing cancer then I will be a happy lady.

I will be taking part in the Shine Walk for Cancer research with all my donations namely going to Skin Cancer. I will walk 27 miles and every step I take I will be punching fear right back in the face.

Each year Cancer Research UK’s scientists get closer to beating cancer, and they’ve helped double survival rates in the last 40 years. But we can’t stop there.

Only with our continued support can they turn this research into breakthroughs that save millions of lives. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me, it really doesn't have to be much but know this when you do, It will help me on my way to help cancer research find new ways to treat skin cancer.
