My personal message:

A couple of years ago, I never thought I'd be training for a 10k run. I know it's not a long distance, but for me, it's a really big deal. There were times when I didn't even think I'd still be around.

I feel incredibly grateful that my cancer treatment was successful. I know that not everyone is so lucky. And even though today's medical science is amazing, there's plenty of room for improvement, so that cancer can be treated without the unpleasant side effects.

That's why I'm such a big fan of Cancer Research UK, which gives money to really smart people, to enable them to conduct research into better and more effective treatments.

I know money's tight for most people at the moment - but it's the thought that counts - not the quantity. Every little helps.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It's also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Cancer Research UK gets your money faster and, if you're a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

So please sponsor me now!
