Inspiring stories behind our Colour Run participants

Richard and his friend Sue are taking part in the Shrewsbury Colour Run this April.

In 2020, Richard’s wife Linda was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at the age of 58 after discovering a lump. After having the lump removed in September 2020, Linda went on to have chemotherapy and radiotherapy at the Lingen Davies Cancer Centre in 2021. She experienced side affects as a result of the treatment but is now in remission and back at work.

Richard and Sue, former work colleagues, have taken on several challenges over the years for charity and are looking forward to joining in the fun at the Shrewsbury Colour Run.

Good luck Richard and Sue! We look forward to seeing on 1st April.

Meet Lis. Lis was diagnosed with Breast Cancer ten years ago after finding a lump. She received radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment from the Lingen Davies Cancer Centre and when she was given all clear, she took part in a research project to help determine the right amount of radiotherapy treatment that should be given to patients.

Although Lis was in remission, her husband sadly passed away from Small Cell Lung Cancer four years ago, less than a year after getting married.

Through the staff at the cancer centre, Lis learned about us as charity and decided to volunteer at Abbeyfest last year. She is continuing to support the charity this year by taking part in the Shrewsbury Colour Run with two friends who have also undergone cancer treatment.

Thank you for sharing your story Lis and good luck for the Colour Run!
