Story

Personal Bit

I don't do running.

I also thought I didn't "do" cancer, but in 2014 my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. She's undergone several operations and started chemo on 30 Dec 2014. 2015 is going to be a tough year for her.

Compared to that, I think I can do running. Especially if it helps find a way to rid the world of cancer. 

Your support really means a lot to me. 

This isn't just for me, or my mum but for all the people who are coping or have coped with cancer. I know a lot of people will have to face cancer sometime in their life. With your help, we can hopefully cut that number down.

Generic Bit that I didn't write but still think is worth reading

Thanks for visiting my Race for Life page. Please dig deep and sponsor me online - it's quick, easy and totally secure.

Events like Race for Life are vital in funding Cancer Research UK's life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer. By sponsoring me, we can unite and create a force that cancer can't ignore.

Gift Aid it!

If you're a UK taxpayer (Emma: i.e. you have a job), please remember to tick the Gift Aid box as this will increase your donation by at least 25% at no cost to you.

Sponsor me now, and we can become cancer's worst nightmare.

One day we will beat cancer. Help us make it sooner.

TL;DR: Mum's got cancer. I'm running 5K for cancer research. Your support is appreciated.
