Miles for MacMillian  
Today I walked The Cardiff Bay Trail to raise money for MacMillian Cancer Support. It was wet and it was windy but it was worth every rain-soaked mile we walked, because today I walked for my family. For every one of them who's been beaten by cancer, for every one of them who's survived cancer, and for every one of them currently fighting cancer.

Today I also walked for myself. 

I haven't said anything yet, because I tend not to worry about things until they happen, but at the moment I'm being tested for Breast Cancer.

I found a lump a few week ago and was referred to the local breast centre just last week where they found two lumps and took three biopsies. Now, they obviously can't promise anything but they've told me they're pretty confident that they're likely only to be 
fibroadenomas. Although I won't know for certain until next Friday when I get the results of my biopsy back. Now, like I said, I'm not worrying about anything yet and won't do until I know either way, but I figure getting some positive energies sent my way couldn't possibly hurt my case, right?

My sisters and I always used to joke that it'd be a case of Russain Roulette as to what type of cancer we'd end up getting, because there's just that much of it in our families, but I like to think I'm a bit too young to have to worry about something like this right now. 

So yeah. Today I walked for everyone who's ever been affected by cancer in one way or another. I've managed to get some sponcership money from my family, but I'm here to ask if any of my friends would be willing to donate money (no matter how small an amout) to me for MacMillian.

You can donate to me via my paypal, which is: cs_hepburn@hotmail.com 
Or, if you want to send me a donation, PM me and I will send you my address.
Alternatively, if you want to purchase me a [ Charity V-gift ], particularly the "
Breast Cancer Awareness", I will donate £1 on your behalf. 

Please, no one feel obliged. I won't be offended either way you choose to go on this. 
<33

Oh honey. You have all my positive thoughts and energies that the biopsies come back negative. In my experience, they don't like to raise false hopes so must be fairly sure it's nothing serious.

Money is a little tight right now because I haven't got my first payslip from the new job yet but I do the Macmillan 10k Fun Run because it's a brilliant cause. :)

Thanks, darling :) I'm pretty confident it's just a false alarm, but it doesn't hurt to cross ones fingers just in case. Either way I'll find out on Friday.

Don't worry about it at all! I'm not expecting anyone to donate, your positive thoughts are more than enough for me :) and I know you do a bit for MacMillian already (you crazy person with the running! heh)

It's certainly better to get it tested and know it's a false alarm than have any niggling doubts if it's not. And also, if there is something, it's never too early to catch it. Fingers crossed it's all clear by the time you see this.

I didn't do much this year, I ran for the RNLI because my grandad was a keen sailor but next year I'll be back with them. :) Running isn't so bad!! Maybe try a 5km first though.

Occasionally I will have Saturday's off I hope, but yeah other than that I get no weekends :(

I'm back in uni next week though so will be up for meeting up in the evening if you're doing early finishes at any point.

I would greatly appreciate booking in some CaspeShaz time for your time off.

Thanks, hun! <33

The positive energy is what I'm really after so don't feel obliged at all to donate.

Joining in the sending of positive energy ♥ and will also try and sort out a paypal donation. My thoughts are with you, and bravo on making the trek!

♥ thank you, darling! My legs still hurt two days later but it was totally worth it :) I've been a great supporter of MacMillian for a few years now so it's nice to actually get involved with them on a more active level.
