Help more people beat cancer

Thank you for visiting Bella's Race for Life sponsorship page. Please dig deep and sponsor her online - it's quick, easy and totally secure. 

Anyone that knows us knows that Bella has pretty bad asthma and has spent a lot of time in hospital. She also suffers from severe allergies and eczema and just to control the three problems she has to take 5 medications a day. Her asthma is so bad that when she was 4 she spent a week in hospital on oxygen, unable to even get up to go to the toilet. These days her meds stop her from suffering too much and we've just had 6 months clear of hospital for the first time ever in 7 years of her life. When I ran 10k last year to raise money for the oncology hospital that manages my mums terminal cancer, Bella made me promise that I would let her run the Race For Life this year. So we're doing the 5k together on July 1st. I honestly don't know if Bella can even walk 5k, but we're going to do our best, because Bella loves my mum so, so much and desperately wants to do something to help keep her with us for as long as possible. When I told Bella that we were going to try and raise £250 she started crying because she's scared that it's too much and she'll fail. I've told her that it doesn't matter, as long as we try, but I would be so grateful if you could help me show Bella that we can do it. Thanks so much from both of us!
