Race for life 5k run Sunday 6th July 2014

 I am really proud to say that my eldest daughter Jessica has decided to enter the Race for Life on Sunday 6th of July to help raise funds for Cancer research.
She has decided to enter the 5k race and is busy training for the event .

 Our family, like many others has been affected by cancer on more than one occasion. My story you are all very familiar with as I have been very vocal about my own battle with PMP. But what many people are not aware of is that just after my first surgery and just as I was starting to recover my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer.

 We had all just been through the mill with PMP and now it was time to face cancer in a new guise. Mum’s treatment started initially with surgery and then was followed up by chemotherapy. With each treatment the effects of the chemo were worsening making her really ill which resulted in a hospital stay. She suffered hair loss, sickness and all the other ill effects that this type of treatment brings.

Gladly mum has recovered very well and is continuing to stay cancer free.
More recently a close family friend has also been undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
