Enter the first twilight Race for Life event
A woman from West Molesey who battled breast cancer wants others to join a new twilight Race for Life event.
Alison Sinfield, 56, had the disease diagnosed in February 201 after she discovered a lump two years earlier.
Doctors originally said the lump was a cyst and when Ms Sinfield saw a consultant in 2011 she was sent for a mammogram and biopsy, which revealed it was stage three breast cancer which had spread to her lymph nodes.
After going through six cycles of chemotherapy, a mastectomy and radiotherapy, Ms Sinfield is now waiting for reconstruction surgery.
She said: “The whole thing has been a slow and painful process but I’m doing really well and I’m fortunate to have wonderful friends and family who have been there for me every step of the way.”
Ms Sinfield has already taken part in four Race for Life events and will now take part in the twilight event at Kingston and Kempton Park on October 19.
Ms Sinfield said: “Twilight will mean even more to me this year as I lost a good friend Pam to lung cancer in February, she fought so hard and was so brave right to the end. She’ll be very much on my mind during the event.
“Now that I’m on the road to recovery I’m absolutely determined to get my own back on cancer. That’s why I feel so passionately about recruiting more women to join me at Twilight.”
