We all take life for granted, never in a million years would I of thought that I would lose my Mum when I was only 24, she was the my best friend, so fit and healthy and full of life and smiles and happiness everyone who knew her loved her.

She sadly lost her fight with Leukaemia in March 2007, after only being diagnosed in the January, she was only 45 years old, she was taken way too soon. 

She will be running with me on the day, she is my angel and I really believe that she is always there looking after me and my precious boys.

I would love to raise lots of money for this charity and help save others.

I can’t wait to run the 13 miles with my bestie Franny we have got this!
