I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to find a cure for cancer!

In memory of

Paula Bennett

Cancer has affected us all in so many ways and i take part in the race for life every year to raise as much money and awareness as possible.

As many of you will know i have lost my grandmother and great grandmother to cancer and always dedicate the race for life to them. However, this year i am dedicating it to a precious family friend we have lost.

Tragically last year we lost a very precious family friend, Paula Bennett to cancer. She was diagnosed with breast cancer 5 years ago and thank fully recovered after a tough battle. When she was back to her old self we took part in the race for life every year to raise as much money as possible. She loved every second of taking part and being part of such an amazing fundraiser.

She became unwell late last year and after multiple tests she was diagnosed with lung cancer. She tried her all to be strong and was determined to put up a fight but unfortunately she was too unwell and weak to fight any longer.

We lost Paula very close to Christmas and it was one of the toughest goodbyes we have had to face.

She was kind, caring, funny, vibrant and a truly wonderful lady. She was adored by all of her family and friends and the world is a much sadder place without her in it.

This year I am doing the race for life in her memory. I know how much she would love to be there taking part with me and although she cant be there in body she will be in my heart.

Please donate, it will make a huge difference to so many people's lives. It doesn't matter how much it is it would mean the world to have your support. We need to find a cure for cancer!
