Our wonderful, amazing Mum tragically passed away from cancer in June of this year, and we’re running in her memory to raise as much as we can to go towards finding a cure for the horrific disease.
Mum was first diagnosed almost 15 years ago, and it’s because of the wonderful medical treatment she received that we had the last few years together. She bravely fought the disease all this time, enduring the treatments and drugs, and we have many wonderful memories together that we wouldn’t have otherwise had. However, the cancer became more aggressive more recently, and she lost the battle just a few weeks ago. Our family was just devastated that she was taken from us too soon.
Mum was a genuinely wonderful woman, who apart from being a fantastic mother and wife, did a lot of work for animal charities. She donated, fundraised, re-homed and personally rescued countless cats and dogs that were in need.
We want to do something positive in her memory, and try and raise as much as we can to go towards cancer research to help fund further treatments and eventually a cure. It’s too late for our Mum, but we hope that in our lifetimes we see a cure found so that countless lives aren’t lost each year to this terrible disease.
We’re running the 10km Race for Life in London on the 29th September 2019 in memory of our fantastic Mum. We know that people receive a lot of charity sponsorship requests, but this one is so dear to our hearts and any donation you can give would be so much appreciated at this time.
