Davina and MarkLosing someone is one of the hardest things you ever have to face. I lost my stepfather, Mark, quite unexpectedly and suddenly to cancer – it leaves you with a gaping hole in your life.

I don’t think you ever get over the loss, you just learn to somehow continue living your life without that person there – and do what you can, where you can, to honour their memory in some way.

For me, working for World Cancer Research Fund is something positive that I do every day and I believe the work we do would have meant a lot to my stepfather. You can’t change what’s happened, but we all hope that what we do now might make a difference to someone else some day.
