Were doing the Race for Life to raise £500 for Cancer Research

Lorna and Rachel have signed up to do the Race for Life for Barney, Lorna's Boyfriend and Rachel's Best Friend.

After being diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Burkitt Lymphoma just under a month ago, Barney has now started his biggest fight against this disease and is currently undergoing intense chemotherapy 3 weeks at a time.

Burkitt lymphoma is a type of high-grade non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It is one of the fastest growing lymphomas known. NHBL affects on average 1,200 people in the USA.

Barney has been such an inspiration to his friends and family, so we are doing the Race for Life to prove that his journey is worthwhile. We want to raise awareness and give something back as you always think this wouldnt happen to you or someone close to you.

As a personal touch to "Our Barns" we have decided to run as "Barney Bears" ?❤️

Cancer is happening right now, which is why we're taking part in the Race for Life 5k, at Blackpool on the 5th July 2017, to raise money and save lives.
