My story

[p]In 2009 my Mum (Christine McKenzie) was diagnosed with breast cancer. She beat it. In December 2012 it came back. She had her left breast removed and then faced a long road of reconstruction, only just finishing this year in 2017. Apparently over a life time the risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer is 1 in 8 women in the UK. Please, all my strong women check your boobs. When I was chatting to my Mum about her breast cancer she said "I'm one of the lucky ones, me" in her delightful broad Yorkshire accent. That captures her in a statement. She's had her left boob taken off and she's one of the lucky ones. [/p] [p]Little over a month ago, my darling best friend Kirsty Freeden was diagnosed with colon cancer. She has had 20cm or her colon removed, and now faces chemotherapy. Every 15 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with a form of bowel cancer. Please, all of you, don’t ignore changes in how you poo, it’s one of the main symptoms. Kirsty is one of the strongest women I know and she has approached this, as with everything, with a lot of humour and some tears. She is very much looking forward to putting ‘this pain in her ****’ behind her.[/p] [p]Cancer doesn’t care if you are a woman or a man, if you are black, white, brown or sky blue pink with yellow dots on, if you are young or old.[/p] [p]At the moment I can’t kiss my kids good night, without thinking about children who have cancer. I can not imagine what it must be like for those children and their parents.[/p] [p]So I am running the London Marathon in 2018, for Children with Cancer. Please dig deep and sponsor me lots of money- and check your boobs, your poo and hold your children very tight (although not all at the same time).[/p]
