Three generations of ladies from Horsham and Cowfold successfully completed the Race for Life on Sunday June 24.
63-year-old Trish Law, from Cowfold, completed the race for life with her daughter Theresa and three granddaughters Leah, Abbie, and Jess, from Horsham.
Trish’s father was diagnosed with lymphoma and died at 52 while her mother underwent successful treatment for breast cancer and bowel cancer but finally lost her life to pancreatic cancer.
“It is for this reason that we want to raise as much as we can for Cancer Research,” Trish said, “without which many would not be here today.
“The race at Ardingly was more of an obstacle race, having to miss the puddles or divert round them. It was very wet and soggy under the feet.”
Trish had been raising funds for Cancer Research throughout the year, now reaching £3,500, by selling items on ebay and holding fund-raising days.
“Cancer Research UK is an important charity which needs our support,” Trish said. “We want more people to survive. Chemo has lasting effects on the body and we hope that other forms of cures can also be found without such lasting side effects. “Too many families suffer from effects of the illness and loss of loved ones, so we need to help to make sure it is minimized.”
