Since moving into the month of April, it has bought with it Bowel Cancer Awareness month, which will always trigger pain and upset but it also fills me with an a ray of positive messages, awareness and support across the Bowel Cancer UK charity network - which I am very proud to be apart of and support.
One lady; who I've met through the charity and admire and love a lot is Deborah James (Aka the Bowel Babe), who has given me the nudge I needed to finally sign myself up for my first ever 5K run at the Truro Race For Life. The run falls on my birthday and I couldn't think of a better time to take part in it with friends supporting me. I have chosen a very appropriate team name called 'We've got the Birthday runs', so watch this space for photos and an update on the how the event goes in July.
