Cancer touches so many people's lives and although there are positive stories of people beating this cruel disease, there are unfortunately still lots of sad stories where people don't.
I have lost two grandparents to cancer and most recently my beautiful aunt, Jennifer, sadly lost her battle with this disease.
I also have family still fighting their battle with cancer; my step dad, Ray and my mother-in-law, Brenda.
Brenda's strength and positivity throughout her continued treatment never ceases to amaze me.
I am taking part in this race for all of these family members and to help raise funds for cancer research, in the hope that eventually we might never have to lose someone to this awful disease again.
