My story

[p]I think we've all been affected by cancer at some stage in our lives. I lost my mum at a young age in 1988 and my dad in 2014, both to cancer. Members of my maternal and paternal extended families have also been impacted by this heartbreaking disease.[/p][p]In 2018 I start being screened myself for abnormal cells just as a precautionary measure.[/p][p]I started running about a year ago, it's more of a run/walk that I do but it's a start! I'm challenging myself to run a 10K race each month in 2018 (with a half marathon thrown in for good measure!) because I want to improve my running and I'm doing it for my cousin Heather too. This challenge as somewhay changed into 'entering more that just 1 x 10K per month', race details posted below.[/p][p]Heather has been battling cancer since 2013 and continues to do so. She has really been through the mill, but she has such determination to live and work and carry on.[/p][p]Daft as a Brush is Heather's chosen charity.[/p][p]Sadly Heather passed away on 15th September 2018.[/p][p]Runs booked so far:[/p][p]January 21st - Dalton Park 10K- postponed to 4th February due to weather.[/p][p]January 21st - unofficial 10K run in Ashington community woods.
