Hi there, Emma here, a few years back I ran Various Race for Life's in memory of my Uncle Stanley and for 2 kick ass women who have successfully kicked cancers butt, there names are Jenny and Sarah.
This year I’m running for 2 very special people, Chris McEachran and Sara Ingerson. Chris was my best friend’s Dad (and who I called my second dad) he unfortunately lost his battle with lung cancer in 2018. Sara is my best friend (my sister from another mister) and is currently battling breast cancer for the second time in a year. Sara has already been through one round of chemotherapy in 2018 and had an operation in February of this year to remove the cancer. The operation was a success 😀Unfortunately only months later on a routine check up she was advised it had come back again ☹️ and midway through her second round she contracted sepsis. While carrying out tests they discovered that the cancer has spread even further and she is now classed as terminal :(. This is truly heartbreaking and she's only 38 with a 5 Year old daughter! How is this fair? We need to find a cure!
Hi there Helen here, this is my first ever Race for Life and I'm not one for starting off small so I'm going straight in with the big 10k 💪 Cancer has also affected members of my family. I'm running in memory of my Grandad, Auntie Christine and Uncle Graham who unfortunately lost their battles, my Auntie Dorothy who is currently fighting her battle and my mum who has kicked cancers butt twice!
We run the Race for Life 10K in York on Sunday 15th September 2019. We want to help raise as much money as possible to hopefully one day find a cure for cancer!
