“I was the only person finishing radiotherapy that day. At first I didn’t want to ring the bell - I felt embarrassed at the thought of people watching me - but I can’t explain the wash of emotion I felt when people started clapping. It felt like an acknowledgement of what we were all going through together. That final radiotherapy treatment marked the end of my physical journey, but I didn’t...

“My dad was quite a classy guy and he loved his cars. When I look at this picture, I always remember how much he loved me because I was his little girl. After he died of mouth cancer in 2008, it really put my life into perspective and how I am with my kids. I had the upmost respect for my dad and miss him terribly.” Thank you to Sam Bailey for sharing your story and this lovely photo. This is...

Along with his family, he formed Team Hix Mix to...

In July 2015, following appointments with his GP and a specialist, Rob was told there was a tumour on his left kidney. “Our son Jake, then only five, and my daughter Abbie, aged nine, were too young to understand the word cancer, and I didn’t have a clue how to explain it to them. Thankfully, Cancer Research UK’s forums were really helpful for things like what to say to your children. To make...

“While I was recovering from a brain tumour and a stroke last March, I took part in Walk All Over Cancer. I’d had brain surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and I’d been told my cancer was life limiting. The stroke also meant any kind of movement was difficult for me. It was such a horrendous time. On the second day of my treatment, I got a dog – a fluffy pug called Betty. She was...

"I consider myself very fortunate to be a cancer survivor after I was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2000 and then in 2004 – when I got to my 50th birthday I made sure it was a big one and had three parties so that I could see all my family and friends. I take every opportunity to talk about cancer to help raise awareness. I’m passionate about the work of Cancer Research UK, so I...
