I am so very lucky to have received first hand support from this wonderful charity. I want to help raise their profile, so instead of just running for me, I'm doing it for them to say thanks for getting me through the last year.
On 23 March 2017 I heard the words I never thought I'd hear - I was told I had breast cancer. When the nurse asked me if I had any dependants it hit me that this was real. I made a conscious decision at that moment that cancer would not defeat me and with the ever present support and love from my family and friends I endured surgery and 4 weeks of radiotherapy. One year on, I'm clear of cancer and live in hope it won't come back.
When I did the Kilomathon last year with my running buddy Jenna (2 weeks after my diagnosis and awaiting surgery ) I feared I might never run again. It was by far my hardest and longest run to date, but we did it. So this year, I'm doing it again WITHOUT cancer.
