Race For Life (video)

Today was incredible!

​Today 22 of my dearest friends and loved ones from all areas of my life – including my mum, sister and dad (in a wig!) – came together to pull on their running shoes and run the local 5km Race for Life and I couldn’t be more proud!

I felt absolutely showered with love and support. I don’t think I can ever put into words how special all of these awesome ladies made me feel by giving up their Sunday to help raise money for cancer research! And not just any Sunday either, it’s also Father’s Day today!

I am truly blessed to know such wonderful women!

And do you know what’s even more awesome?…between them they raised over £5000! How insanely awesome is that?!

I could go on and on about how grateful I am but instead I’ll let the photos do the talking for once. I could actually cry with how happy these pictures make me!

Oh and yes, of course, I was dressed like a bumble bee and I even had a mini bumble bee friend with me!…bumble bees are very special to me and play an important role in motivating me on my journey.

Love and light to everyone, Fi xxx

  3. Hi Fiona – I have been reading your blog and you are so inspiring! I was having a “down” day today and decided to check your blog for updates. I have OC stage 4 and have had 3 of 6 chemo treatments. Love the video of you and your fundraiser. So proud of how much you have gone through and your positive spirit. Keep spreading the light! -Karen

  4. Hi Fiona – yes, I had a full hysterectomy in March. The surgery went well and the doctor said he removed all evidence of disease. I really like how you promote the symptoms of OC. The symptoms are so vague. I continue to think about you and always hope that you are doing well.

    Karen 🙂
