I’ve done the race before in honour of others... this year I’m doing it for me, to give something back.
In memory of
Last year I had a very crappy diagnosis of cancer cells dancing around inside me. In October 2017 I had to undergo major surgery which has left me a bit shell shocked, caused many other physical problems over the following months which are still ongoing and although I’m hopefully OK I’m still not really out of the woods yet. It was only discovered by chance while I was undergoing investigations for other things, another 6-12 months later and it could have been a very different story for me. I’ve spent over half of my working life looking after people dealing with this disease but it is nothing compared to dealing with it on a personal level. The physical side I can cope with, the mind state is a completely different ball game as I’m sure many will agree. All this being said without the work Cancer Research do, my situation and a lot of the people currently living with cancer would be so much harder. I’ve done the race before in honour of others... this year I’m doing it for me, to give something back to the people who work to fight this! The page is secure for donations dig deep xxx
