Hi and Welcome....

The reason for my blog is that Colin had Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma (secondary kidney cancer). In addition to this, his eldest brother David died in April 2008, 5 weeks after being diagnosed with Laryngeal Cancer and his elder sister Sue was diagnosed with Lobular Breast Cancer in March 2009. All that said, I am still smiling and trying to be up beat about everything because if I wasn’t I don’t think I would cope as well as I have so far. Sadly Colin passed away on 23rd Dec 2009.

If you would like to follow or comment on this blog, then please feel free.

Race 4 Life - Finished in 52 mins

Well I did Race for Life on Sunday in the glorious sunshine and as you can see I did it in 52 mins side by side with my friend Mel (that's 3mins faster than we did it last year).

Didn't get sunburned thanks to my sister-in-law Rachel who was a volunteer and supplied anyone and everyone with sun cream by the starting line, Thanks Rachel :-).

Wyvern FM were there as usual and this year there were the Nivea Boys to help us with a short workout.

I have raised £351.50 in sponsorship this year which is my highest amount yet.
Between Mel, Jess, Ness, Hayley, Claire and myself we have raised £802.50. So a BIG BIG BIG thanks to everyone who sponsored us.
If you haven't sponsored me you still can at http://www.raceforlifesponsorme.org/colswife


  1. Big congratulations on your time and the amount raised.
