My beautiful sister, Charlotte, is currently undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer.
In 2012, my gorgeous mum was diagnosed with cancer and was successfully treated for it. The cancer has recently returned.
Two of my grandparents died from cancer.
Supporting my sister, holding her hand, as her husband shaved her head will be an experience that will never leave me. The memories of hearing both my mum and my sister say to me, "it's cancer" within a year of each other will stay with me. Watching them both bravely face their fears, and the gruelling physical treatments, will stay with me. Watching my dad worry about his wife, and then the following year, see his eldest daughter go through chemotherapy, will stay with me. As a little girl, and young woman watching my grandparents fight and ultimately lose their battles with cancer is something that will stay with me.
Cancer is an illness very close to my heart. I have felt at a loss to know how to help my sister and mum as they have been walking their journey through living with cancer. So, in support of them, I am fundraising for Cancer Research UK. Please visit my blog at http://mimiandtilly.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/fundraising-for-cancer-research-uk.html for more details about the raffle and exactly how to enter.
