Thank you!

I wanted to say a (rather late) thank you to everyone of you who sponsored, supported and encouraged me to run the 2016 Race for Life. For me it was far more than running 10k – it was a celebration of the amazing work that Cancer Research do each and every day, a celebration of how far I’ve come in the last 12 months and a start on my journey back to fitness.


I set myself the target of raising £250, which I never thought I’d meet but with your generosity, I raised more than double the amount £505.61. I’m beyond chuffed and your support really did help me run the course.

In both the Bournemouth and Cardiff runs, the people cheering on the side lines made me smile but having my bestie, Hayley, at my side in Cardiff made the run a breeze. She’s been by my side throughout my journey – from the surprise visit the day after my op to listening to my moans on Whatsapp. She, in more ways than one, is my biggest sponsor and cheerleader.

Thank you to each and everyone of you for your kind donations, your words of support and your pounds. Cancer treatment is evolving faster than many of us can keep up and that’s only possible because of generous people like you.

Thank you – more than you know, Becky xxx

  1. Hi Becky, well done on the run and monies raised!! Also love the choice of movies you recommend which I shall not only be watching myself on my lazy days (old age days) but more importantly telling our patients about on the unit!! I do enjoy reading your blog and pleased life is good… keep blogging x Catherine


    1. Hi Catherine

      Thank you so much for your positivity – you will be sunshine for your patients.

      I want to do lots more blogs on things like the PICC line etc but it’s just finding time – excuses I know!

      Sending you lots of love, Becky xxx


  2. Hi Becky, hope all well with you and life in general.. I’m just catching up on your blog and wanted to say that I think the PICC line blog idea is brilliant for all the obvious reasons and first hand experience you have had… Don’t think enough attention is paid to this area of care and some patients just don’t seem to grasp the importance.. Information overload at a very vulnerable time of their lives I know, but taking ownership of their lines is the way ahead, knowledge is power.. So brilliant idea and look forward to the blog on that..

    Speak soon xx Catherine


    1. Thanks Catherine

      I’m hoping to put more time aside for the blog – I don’t seem to be posting as much as I’d hoped but it’ll come, I’m sure.

      Hope all’s well with you – love to all the family xx
