I have lost my Dad to cancer this year - I am determined to do my bit to fight this dreadful disease

In memory of

Ron Gagie (Dad)

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives. Anyone who knows me knows I don't run - I am walking it with the fabulous #teamsusie and the amazing Colin, The Big Pink Dress.

My Mam is a survivor of breast cancer of 28 years which is why I started fundraising over 7 years ago. Last October our worlds were turned upside down when out of nowhere, my Dad was diagnosed with colon, appendix, stomach and lung cancer. He had not been poorly. He was only in pain that week. 4 short months later he was gone :( I am more determined than ever now to do my bit and help to raise vital funds. The progress that has been made, even just over the last 10 years is amazing but there is still a lot more to be done.

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. Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Cancer Research UK.
