    Been thinking about joining in the Cancer Research UK's Race For Life this year and I'm trying to read about the fundraising ideas and training etc and I can't stop crying because I lost my nan to cancer when I was about 12-13.

    She was like a second mum to me, she was my hero, and I keep getting overwhelmed by the idea of actually pushing myself to do something great in her memory...ugh even typing this I can't stop crying >.< Need to pull it together...I had no idea I still felt so raw about it...this was nearly 10 years ago!

    Also, it just so happened to be the anniversary of her death on 27th March...the day I just decided out of the blue to make some scones that reminded me of her - my mum didn't tell me til later on!

    You can do it, your Nan will be so proud and will be right with you through it. I have lost too many friends and family to cancer and right now my Uncle is in end stage :( You are doing an amazing thing.
