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

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.

Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who hasn't been affected by cancer. Practically everyone I know has had a relative or a friend who has been struck by this awful disease.

From the young age of 3, I lost my grandma to cancer, and I live every day wondering how different life would have been if she'd had been around to see me grow up. All I have is stories of how brilliant she was and how she didn't deserve to go so young.

My other grandmother, the one who i grew up with and who was my closest grandparent to me, died in 2017 from her struggle with stomach cancer. The strongest lady I knew, was struck down by such a horrible illness and I miss her every single day.

One of my aunties forcefully battled off her cancer twice. Both times while I was still quite young. It is only as I have gotten older that I realised what she was going through and how amazingly lucky she is to have responded so well to treatment.

I hope one day the last story becomes the norm and that cancer can become cured once and for all.

When someone is diagnosed with cancer, they begin to face an abundance of physical, mental and emotional challenges. However, it is the charities, family, friends, doctors and nurses that are there to help them through those tough times.
I hate running, I really do. For me, 5k is a real challenge, yet for others its a breeze. I am running the race for life this year because I CAN and because I want to help make a difference. Although this is a challenge for me, it is absolutely nowhere near the difficulty people are faced with when cancer comes knocking on their door.

I have never fundraised properly before so this is all very new to me. All I ask is for your support, and any fundraising ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much in advance for everything!
