Nana was my chosen mother, confidante, inspiration, hero n true friend. She survived breast cancer with her Northern no nonsense practical aptitude. Sadly vascular dementia took her in 2007.
Da was my welsh hard working, superhero, right hand man who held me up when I faltered. A heart attack identified terminal lung cancer in 2011. For decades he had vehemently lived with illnesses with only half a lung free of emphasemia to now fight for time with a tumour ironically placed in the working part of his lung. Not once did he give up. Family was everything to him n that was why he bravely fought through the tremendous pain n suffering. He surrendered to peace 2013.
This is for us all.
Those suffering, fighting, surviving n those of us in torment watching our loved ones; feeling helpless.
In honour of my guardian angels above, friends n family also touched by Cancer.
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 10k 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.
