Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and save lives.
Working for the NHS I am exposed to stories of how cancer affects people and their families on a day to day basis. On a personal level I have had a grandmother, mother, aunt and sister in law all affected by breast cancer, a step son that I never met, who was aged only 16, with a very rare form of cancer and now my husband with prostate cancer. It is an evil disease and we need all the help we can get with raising funds for research to try and find a cure and soon. It's not just peoples health that is affected, it is it's mental, physical and financial effects too, to name but a few.
I am not a runner by any stretch of the imagination but I am going to try and do this to help others (and hopefully have a bit of fun as well). Please help by donating to my Just Giving page. Thank you.
