About

Most people will have first hand experience the joy of hearing that a loved one is going to have a baby.  Sadly most will also know the horror of hearing that a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer.  For some, both happen together, meaning specialist support is required throughout and beyond the pregnancy.

Mummy’s Star is the only charity in the UK and Ireland dedicated to supporting women and their families affected by cancer during pregnancy or within 12 months after giving birth (http://www.mummysstar.org/)

I do quite a lot of running, and other than saving me from middle age spread, this is a fantastic opportunity for me to do something positive
