St Ives Ladies Charity Run – Sunday 31 Dec

The ladies squad are running to raise money for Hunts Community Cancer Network in support of their fellow team mate who is currently undergoing chemotherapy for bowel cancer.

The run will take place around 9:30 am, starting from the St Ivo Outdoor Centre and finishing at the football club about 9:45 am.

All are welcome to attend at WWR to greet and give them the welcome they deserve. Refreshments will be available.

Back in April 2017 my life changed forever when I heard the words “you have stage 4 bowel cancer”. Thankfully the words that followed were “curative intent” and that was all I needed to hear!

Since then I’ve had major surgery on both my bowel and liver and I’m currently approaching round 5 out of 12 of my chemotherapy post surgery.

So the plan is that between now and 31st Jan 2018 I’m going to run a mile for every year of my life. To some people this may seem easy but believe me when I say I only ever run for cake! Whilst trying to complete my miles I’ll still be receiving chemo every other Tuesday. Running even 1 mile on chemo week is gonna be a chore but I’m gonna do it! I’m gonna have some help and motivation in the form of my 14 year old daughter who is going to run every mile by my side ( thank you princess – I love you).

Any donations are greatly appreciated, I can’t thank the nurses at HCCN enough for all they are doing for me and my family at this difficult time.
