Story

My story is unfinished but here goes. My grandma was diagnosed with breast cancer aged 47 and fought and defeated this. When my mum was 47 she was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer, sitting her 5 children down to tell us she had the dreaded c must of been one of the hardest things to do. I went with her to appointments just after her initial diagnosis to find out it had spread to her bones and liver. My world was shattered. This was my mum she was indestructible, a warrior!! She fought and beat the breast and liver cancer whilst managing the bone cancer. At her one year check up it was back and again she said no and fought it like the hero and warrior she was. Whilst fighting her own battle she sadly watched her Mum succumb to lung cancer in 2013 so not only did it take my grandmother but it took the fight from my mum. On December 25th 2014 exactly one year and a week to the day she lost her own mum, my mum lost her own battle. It was also her 51st birthday and having to say goodbye to her and breaking the news to my siblings almost destroyed me. And this is why this evil horrid disease needs to cured. It’s a wound that never heals and I hope and pray a cure is found. I now wait in fear and check myself worrying if it is also my fate to find a lump and not enough is done to put those left behind at ease. In 10 years time I will be 47 and I’m petrified that I’ll have to sit my children down and follow the history of my female line. What many don’t know is I had a breast cancer scare in December 2019. I was petrified I was that 1 in 4 I’ve been told is my odds. I have 4 children and I walk this walk for them in memory of their brave beautiful Nana Julie, their great grandmother Christine, my husbands Nana Jean Giles and all those beautiful souls lost to this evil disease. I took part in the 10K Liverpool shine in 2018, the London shine half marathon in 2019 and that proved I could do anything I put my mind too so along with our Dylan on the 10th September in Liverpool well walk this walk so that we can raise what we can towards kicking cancers arse!!. My health hasn’t been great but I’m determined to smash my previous time. Please donate whatever you can little or small, anything is appreciated 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸. We’d love you to come be a part of our team and together we can raise as much as possible towards getting that cure. Thank you xx
