Race For Life Appeal

(Updated 7:41am 24th May 2012)
An urgent appeal as Cornwall prepares to Race for Life.
Cancer Research UK is calling on more women to sign up for the 5K events.
Penzance is next week.
Only 62% of places are filled.
Survivors Tracey Bew from Helston and her sister are both running.
They were diagnosed within weeks of each other: "As soon as I had my diagnosis I just went to her and I said, look, are you up to date with your smear? She said no so I made her promise me to go and get it done. I was in hospital at the time and she told me she was all clear. Then when I came out ten days later, she said actually I lied.
"We were among the lucky ones. We've managed to pull through it, been there for each other and if we can just help another person, then it's all worthwhile; most definitely".
