    Story

    Hello Family and Friends.

    I’m running the Great Bristol 10k in May this year after having a few prods and pokes from some of you over the last couple of years. I am a casual jogger so this will require a good amount of training on my behalf.

    When thinking about which charity to run for I did have a couple in mind that were close to my heart.

    However, after learning some extremely sad news very recently within our family I’ve decided that my cousin Narissa and her family could really do with as much support as possible.

    Here is a little bit about her story.

    In 2015, at the age of 30 Narissa was diagnosed with invasive grade 3 breast cancer. She underwent intensive surgery and therapy and with her strength and determination she beat the cancer and went into remission.

    She was able to return to normal life with her husband Nic and their 2 beautiful children, who are now 13 and nearly 11.

    In 2017, Narissa was given the devastating news upon her first year review scan that she had developed the disease in her liver and also had bone metastases. She was also given the result of having the BRCA-2 gene mutation.

    Narissa again underwent further tests, investigations, treatments and multiple hospital admissions in a bid to fight the disease. She remained strong and kept fighting despite being very unwell.

    Sadly, Narissa and her family have now been told that there is not much more in the way of treatment but keep her pain managed and has been admitted to St.Peters Hospice.

    I’m hoping that with the support from family and friends we can raise some money for her to enjoy some memorable family experiences as time is of the essence.

    To give them this chance would mean the world to not only myself but more importantly them as a family.

    Narissa has always worked hard in life, usually maintaining 2 jobs along side Nic who is a full time chef and raising their children.

    Her family are her life!

    Please support me.

    Thank you x

      I would like to give the biggest heart felt thank you to everybody that has contributed to Narissa’s fund. It’s completely overwhelming!!! I completed the 10k in under an hour which was my goal. Shaved 1 minute off my personal best so I’m really, really pleased with myself. It’s definitely been a challenge especially trying to fit in the training but I’m so pleased I did it! On to the next.... Once again thank you xx

      Eek the night before...excited but nervous. Loving the homemade flags from 2 of my children 🥰 and very much looking forward to doing my first 10k. Will be running along side my Brother and Nephew which is great! Let’s hope they can keep up with me?!? Ha! 🤣. No, thankfully they have said they won’t run off and leave me. A BIG, BIG thanks to everyone for your donations and support for Narissa and her family. They will be so very grateful at the amount raised which will hopefully enable them to do some memorable things as a family. ❤️
