On Sunday 13th September, I walked another 5 miles for Bowel Cancer UK's Walk Together; this time with my family.
There are so many feelings and emotions that can go along with a family member being diagnosed with cancer. My guilt and feeling of being helpless never goes away so I'm always busying my mind with what I can do to help others and that's raising money for charity. If it helps in some small way to support research into cancer, or keep the Cornwall Hospice beds open, or help and care for sick and injured hedgehogs, then that's what I'll do.
We started at a different point on the walk due to the tide times, so it was quite nice for me being a bit different. On the way round I also placed 2 of my Hedgehog Rocks I paint for Prickles and Paws (P&P) Hedgehog Rescue to raise awareness of my spiky friends and it got found by a little boy called Lucas. This led to a £50 donation to the Hedgehog charity that I care very much about and it made my day. Another magical end to a beautiful day that I know Marty would have loved to have been apart of.
Onwards and upwards to my third socially distanced walk on Sunday 20th September with some more very special people and friends.
