Cancer is happening right now to people that I love, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.
I've lost friends from when I was 12 to very recently to this cruel disease and had a breast cancer scare myself earlier this year which luckily turned out to be a false alarm but brought it all very much into focus.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
I've been running now building up to the 5km as I hope to not just scrape by but do a sub 30 minute time - something that will be a big challenge as I've not done that ever before.
Sponsor me and know that you've helped raise money to beat cancer sooner.
