I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

Birdie Grandma and Portugal Grandma

Earlier this year, I thought I couldn't run. I just thought my body wasn't designed for it. I could barely run for one minute at a time. But I really wanted to get fit, so I challenged myself to complete the NHS cough to 5k programme. Now I've reached the end of that programme, it's time for me to go one step further and take part in a race.

I lost both my grandmothers to cancer when I was still a child, and I still miss them so much. I sometimes hear them in my own voice when I'm calling to or playing with my children, and think how much they would have loved meeting them. Neither of my grandmas even got to meet my future husband, Adam, despite us getting together at a young age. I've wanted to fundraise in their memory for many many years, and I'm so proud to finally be doing it this year. I'll be thrilled if I can complete the race in 35 minutes or less.

Cancer affects every one of us at some point. 1 in 2 of us will suffer from cancer in our lifetime, and we all know someone who has had it. It is a cruel and complicated disease, but the more we can learn about it the better it will be for everyone. Please help me raise money so that we can fight back.
