#Bottleblog – #Cancer – Kirsty


In February 2011, Kirsty was diagnosed with breast cancer. Having seen her grandmother die from the same disease 20 years before, she feared the worst. However, after intensive treatment including a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, she is now looking forward to the future. Kirsty has been chosen as one our 26 ‘Go the Distance Ambassadors’ who have been recruited to encourage people to undertake a running challenge in 2015. Kirsty says: ‘”I continued to run and cycle throughout my cancer treatment. It was like running through treacle but I did it, and it really helped me mentally. Cancer Research UK is very close to my heart and I’m delighted to have been chosen as an ambassador for the charity’s very special year of running.” If you feel inspired by Kirsty’s story and would like to take on a running challenge to help us beat cancer sooner,
