TEAM Kimmy pounded the streets of Southsea in support of one woman who is fighting lung cancer.

Kim Kuszka, who started the 5k race off by sounding a horn, was diagnosed with the disease in January while on holiday in Egypt.

The 53-year-old from Bognor Regis also lost her niece Georgia Tooley to cancer.

The 14-year-old suffered with ewings sarcoma, which was found in her spine.

And Georgia’s mum, Kim’s sister, Cherie has also battled, and beaten, breast cancer.

Kim, who is undergoing radiotherapy at the moment, said: ‘It’s just all about positive thinking.

‘I’m going to be back here next year running it.

‘I wouldn’t be as good as I am now if it wasn’t for all the money that is raised. I have just had a new treatment that’s only been out for about a year.

‘This is just wonderful. It’s amazing. I am so proud.

‘I wouldn’t be where I am without all my family and friends. They have been a mountain of support.’

A team of nine took part in the race for Team Kimmy.
