A mother and daughter from Wisbech will walk 100 miles in May to fundraise for a breast cancer charity.
Jordan Benton is taking on the challenge with her mum Christine, who battled the disease and is recovering well.
In 2018, a routine mamogram picked up that Christine had breast cancer and a few weeks later she started six months of chemotherapy.
This was followed by 21 sessions of radiotherapy and two years of bone-strengthening treatment.
