About Me

Sophie passed away on Monday 14 December but this blog was very important to her in her last few weeks. We will add the last few things she wanted to post so please do continue to read and comment in her memory. --------------------------------------------------------------------- On Wednesday 25 November 2009 I was diagnosed with cancer. This blog shares my stories, thoughts and fears about treatment and my hopes for the future.

Two teams running 10k and 5k for Sophie - please sponsor us!

Thank you to all of you who have donated so generously in Sophie's memory. We have over £7000 on her Macmillan page, which is an incredible sum that will do such a lot of good for everyone affected, directly or indirectly by cancer.

All of us have been coping pretty well thanks to the incredible support of family and friends but we are now ready for some positive action in Sophie's memory and to continue to support her two favourite charities, Macmillan Cancer Support and Cancer Research UK.

Therefore, Kofi, Cali and I are running, with Sophie's friends Gemma, Scott, Iain, Angela and Carly, the BUPA 10k in London on 31st May for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Mum is also tackling a running challenge with her wonderful friends from Bruton, Caroline, Bridget, Denise, Julie and Deborah. Running as 'the King's Ladies' and they will be fundraising for Cancer Research UK. As well as running the 5k race they are holding a number of fund-raising events (including tea parties, mufti days at school etc) in Bruton and Wanstrow so do get involved!

We are hoping to get the total for Sophie above £10k so if any of you would be kind enough to sponsor us yet again we would be immensely grateful! Both links are below so thank you in advance for your incredible continued support.



Thank you.

  1. Hi,

    I knew Sophie at Sunny Hill and found out over the weekend that she's sadly passed away.

    This blog is fabulous and a real insight into her strength in her short but intense fight.

    I'm sorry for the loss of someone so lovely.

    Love and strength to everyone
