I'm taking part in a Very 2020 Race for Life to help beat cancer

After a year where vital cancer trials have been delayed, the Race for Life is more important than ever.

It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster year for our family!

Back in March my dad underwent a total laryngectomy for cancer of the larynx. He was in hospital when lockdown started. Thankfully his radiotherapy treatment took place as intended.

Just after lockdown I was diagnosed with breast cancer. One of those things you think will never happen to you! Earlier this month I had surgery to remove my lump and I’m just waiting now to hear what further treatment I need. We will be walking the 5k (I’m not a runner, especially since the op!) but we’ll be out there doing something positive.

So remember, be breast aware and do get checked if there are any changes no matter how small they seem!

That's why I'll be taking part in a Very 2020 Race for Life. Every pound you can donate will go towards Cancer Research UK’s ground-breaking work, so please sponsor me today!
