Finding a cure for cancer won’t be easy, it’ll take the dedication and determination of many!

For anyone who’s life has been ‘touched’ by cancer, you’ll understand how hearing those initial words makes anything that comes after disappear in a blur. I am doing this walk to help other families, in the hope that they will be able to see their loved one beat cancer. My father was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer just over 12 months ago, there’s no cure, but every day he’s able to take tablets to help keep it at bay. The tablets are a form of chemo, meaning he doesn’t have ‘chemo’ as we know if, but that means living with the side effects of it everyday, with potions and extra tablets all to combat the side effects. But.... he’s still here, he’s still fighting and makes us so proud everyday of how he hasn’t let it beat him. He’s always been a stubborn one though ?and that’s been a great way of approaching each day.

I have had a few friends who have been fortunate enough to beat cancer, which shows it’s not always worst case scenario like we always used to think it was. But I was also unfortunate enough to lose my grandfather to cancer.... which shows that we need more cures, more advancements in treatment so that more people live, but also more people like my dad don’t have have so many aggressive side effects- but he’s the first to say- he would rather that and be here for longer.

I don’t do exercise.... at all..... I think about it a lot but it’s just not me- but I’m going to do this and hope it spurs me onto doing something more.... but knowing that I’ll be helping find a cure for cancer will keep me walking! I’m going to do it, it may not seem much for some people but for me it’s a big deal!
