dad was, as all dads' should be, my role model. He taught me many
things in life - respect for my elders, work hard, take nothing
for granted, love and provide for your family and never be in
debt," said Alex.
the last part of my dads' life after he was diagnosed with cancer,
Macmillan helped and supported my family, a debt which my dad
taken me eight long years to do this but it's time I repaid this
debt. I decided to take part in my first ever half marathon. Please
give what you can so that if you ever find yourself in my position
you will know in your heart that you have helped provide the support
needed by cancer sufferers and their families."
