I’m raising as much as I can to beat cancer

In memory of

Sue Green & all my family & friends affected by Cancer

Cancer is happening right now ! every day our families and loved ones suffer.
I run Chintz a small hair Salon in Middlesbrough and married with a son who’s married and daughter engaged.
I’m 60 years old & my parents have both got or had cancer my Mum is 84 and this year had surgery for Breast Cancer which is the second time in her life she has had to fight Cancer. My Dad has Prostrate Cancer and struggling with Parkinson’s too.

My two brothers have had their lives tragically affected, my younger brother Peter lost his 18 month old daughter Alex to brain Cancer and my older brother Richard last year lost his wife our beautiful Sue aged 58 to lung cancer.

I have lost many many friends & clients over the last 35 years of running Chintz & been to far too many heartbreaking funerals, one of my dear Client’s Margaret Anderson who’s funeral I went to in January of this year, she only found out she had Cancer last summer!
She left her family heartbroken and I’v been deeply affected by her loss and all my other beautiful wonderful family & friends who have battled and lost their battle to cancer.

These are all the reasons why I’m determined to try to Stop 🛑 Cancer by raising money right now for Cancer Research UK. There’s no time to lose!

I’ve decided to do something I’ve never done before such as run a half marathon! I’m not a sporty person more of a lady cakes & tea kind of girl but I’m getting of my butt & doing all I can & really really need your help & support so please consider sponsoring me by
Donating to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

In loving memory ❤️ of my beautiful sister in law Sue & dear Alex my brothers 18 month old Daughter & Margret my lovely client & Christine Marr a dear friend who left her heart broken husband Ian and Kirsty & Calum her children.
I know so many more as I’m sure many many of you reading this page will also have been affected by Cancer. X
One day Cancer will be beaten, let’s all try to make that happen soon.
