Do you know what I can’t get my head around sometimes?
The fact that we can send people into Space and get them back successfully but we haven’t been able to find a cure for the ugly disease that is Cancer yet.
How can that be?
I lost my Mum and my Brother to Cancer and I can honestly say, hand on heart, that 10 years later (11 for my brother) I still think about them both every day. If I think about it for long enough (apart from making me cry) it makes me angry at the world that they had to suffer like they did and selfishly, it makes me even more angry that I have to go through life not being able to have a joke with my brother or pick up the phone to my Mum when I need advice.
So, I usually try not to dwell on the situation but when an email dropped into my inbox last week from Brioche Pasquier about the Race for Life, I knew that, by taking part I would be doing my bit to try and help find a cure for Cancer so people don’t have to go through what we did.
Miss Frugal wanted to join in too so we’ll be doing the Race for Life together on the 28th June in memory of my Mum and my Brother.
I’ve just set up a Just Giving page and I’d love you to donate but even more so, I’d like you to think about signing up yourself and raising even more money to help beat Cancer.
