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.
