I first met Sarah at university in 1998 and, together with Louise and Lisa, we spent the next three years studying, living together and "trying" to cook. Our signature household dish was pasta surprise. Looking back the only surprise was that we ate it!
After a busy three years at university we left to join the real world of work. Now scattered all over the UK we would chat over email and meet-up whenever we had a spare weekend. One of my biggest regrets is that I didn't make more time to catch-up; you always assume that there will be another weekend and another opportunity to chat.
Last year Sarah was taken from us. She was 36 years-old. Sarah had been diagnosed with breast cancer just 15 months earlier. Because of cancer, Sarah's two young children have lost their wonderful mum and Darren has lost his beautiful wife.
I regret that I never made the time to tell Sarah how I was in awe of her. I regret that I never told her how I wasn't surprised when she approached the news of her cancer with bravery, positivity and determination. I have been trying to make up for these regrets ever since. However, even now I find that my words are inadequate. They aren't good enough for our Sarah.
I always think of Sarah as being someone who took action. Therefore, I like to think that she would have been delighted by the fact that a group of us are attempting the Moonwalk in her name. I know that she would want us to do something positive in her memory and that she would want us to take action for other people affected by cancer. I do think that she would also find it funny that we are attempting the whole marathon!
I've created this page because Sarah would want us to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of Walk the Walk and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in The MoonWalk London 2017. Please help our team - Sarah's Angels, please help us do Sarah proud. You can help by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Walk the Walk, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
