After a few weeks of training I have been thinking about the focus for me taking on this challenge. Hard to choose from all the dear people I have known and lost through my life to this damned illness, as well as the amazing people who have fought horrific battles with it and managed to win for which I am truly thankful.
For this challenge though I am choosing to focus on the wonderful Martyn Bennet and Angus Grant, two phenomenal and much-loved Scottish musicians who were taken far too soon, and all the other beautiful musicians who have been taken too soon by cancer.
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.
