Story

13 years ago my Mum was 1st diagnosed with breast cancer. We were one of the lucky ones. The improvements in the last decade meant my Mum was a survivor. But cancer is greedy. It wasn’t going to give up. In the middle of 2017, we found out the cancer was back, and in Mums bones.. this time the Oncologist said they would not be able to make it go away. 

Cancer took both my Grandmas before I even got to meet them, my parents lost their Mums when they were in their early 20’s, and it took my Opa when I was 16 years old, it’s a bit of a ‘theme’ for us Mussert’s. 

I tell myself that hating cancer won’t help, that being angry at it, will not find a cure, but it’s impossible not to feel this deep inside me. But that won’t make cancer stop. Finding a cure will. This is our contribution to try and help.

Neil and I have 5 wonderful and beautiful girls between us, and we cannot even begin to imagine the pain of loosing a child. This is why we want to raise such vital funds for Children with Cancer UK.  To try and stop families having to go through such hideous pain. This year we are buying a house together, and getting married, so why on earth we thought we’d throw running a quick ‘26 miles’ into the pot I’ll never really know!!. However raising  these funds is so very important to us both, so we will find a way.. Please donate in anyway you can, every penny really does help.

Almost 4,000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK. That’s ten every day. Children with Cancer UK is the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. We fund life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer and we work to protect young lives through essential welfare programmes.
