I wish you all the luck Michelle,and Emily,I will be doing my one one close to home so I hope you will agree that the money goes to the same place,

I know how it feels guys and girls, especailly for Keith, as Joanne is getting over this dreadful blight on humanity.

I have lost 4 people close to me to cancer,two dear friends, plus my mother in law, and my partner

thats why i am single again, and wish now to remain so, no ties, cant go through that again,Its not

selfishness,holding the hand of my now late, mother in law while she passed,and my partner dying

in my arms,just tears you apart,its something i will never get over.

so to everybody who supports ,Race for Life, the Marie Curie Fund ,and the Hospices that help

thank you, and good luck and best wishes to all that are taking part, and the ones that help with sponsorship or donations

!Removed! hell Kristal, don't know what to say, what can I say!

All I can say is so sorry to hear that and I understand everything you say about not wanting to have any more emotional ties.

Such a sad sad trail of events. My Mum had cancer about 3 years ago, thanks to speed of diagnosis and treatment shes made a full recovery. I cant imagine, considering how I felt then, how you must feel.

When I started this thread it was doing light hearted really just for me to make as much money as possible for cancer reaserch, why I didnt expect was to read such emotional posts and I have actually cried reading Keith and Kristals posts. This alone gives me the determination to carry on with my training and weight loss and make sure I finish the full 5k and raise as much money as I possibly can.

Big hugs Kristal xxx

You have my deepest sympathy Kristal as I have some empathy as to how you feel.

Two years ago I lost my wonderful Mum--it is something that never leaves you and I still can't believe that I'm never going to see her again.

She suffered terribly towards the end but never lost her dignity and those images will haunt me for the rest of my life--not only have I lost my Mum but being an only child I feel I've lost a best friend as well.

Therefore I wish good luck to Michelle and Emily (or is it Pooh Bear)? :)

I'm doing the Race for Life in memory of my great aunty who sadly died in November age 90. She was very very ill at the end but I was with her until she passed away, they say hearing is the last thing to go, and I wanted my voice to be one of the last ones she heard. :)

That's a very good cause and a lovely tribute for someone who obviously touched your life in some way.

Some of the girls at my work are doing the race and I always sponsor them..........no matter what. :)

No, I'm afraid not.

Many times, just before I leave work, I find myself automatically dialling Mum's number to check if she's OK (being the only one, we were very close) then the realisation dawns and you suddenly feel very empty and so alone.

It just washes over you at undetermined intervals and I don't suppose that I'll ever get over it....................... :(

I'm sure that you know that feeling only too well Kristal.

Time's a healer apparently, but it still feels like it happened yesterday........................ :(
