This time last year Bangor nursing student Emma Bell was cruising through her teenage years without a care in the world, when overnight a shocking cancer diagnosis turned her world upside down.
Now back at university, but still recovering from a gruelling personal battle to beat the disease, she has selflessly thrown herself into fundraising for Cancer Research UK, helping to launch this year's Pretty Muddy race.
In May her four older sisters - Elizabeth (23), Sarah (25), Victoria (33) and Alex (39) - joined her in raising £500 in the charity's Race for Life.
All five will now be getting dirty in the fight against cancer as they support the second Race for Life Pretty Muddy, a women-only, non-competitive 5k obstacle course - with mud.
Pretty Muddy will take place in Ormeau Park, Belfast on Saturday 3 September.
