We're raising as much as we can to beat cancer

Story

It's Emma Matthews' 39th birthday on the day of the Truro 5K Race for Life and it's been on her bucket list of things she wants to do for quite a while! She's asked for her friends to join her on the 7th July 2019 to celebrate her birthday, whilst running (in fancy dress of some sort) in memory of her husband Martyn Matthews, who died from Bowel Cancer at the age of 34 and for so many other people that have suffered from any type of cancer.

You can read more about her story at www.memoriesofmarty.co.uk and why taking part in the Race For Life is so important to her.

When a loved one is diagnosed with a disease, your life is completely transformed - dreams are broken. You meander through a myriad of unwanted emotions and are sent on a testing and very scary rollercoaster. You find yourself reflecting on your ‘previous’ life – one untarnished by cancer – and punish yourself.

Cancer is happening right now and is effecting so many lives... so let's do something together!

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.

Where does your money go?
Each step we make towards beating cancer relies on each pound donated. Here are some examples of how the money you donate can help
- £20 covers the cost of running Cancer Chat for one hour
- £30 is the cost of running a cervical cancer trial for one day
- £80 buys a bunsen burner which can help our scientists to ignite ground-breaking research
- £300 can pay for special chemicals called antibodies, to light up microscopic parts of the cell
