A popular mother-of-two has lost her battle with cancer and her family and friends are running the Race For Life in her honour.
Amy Innes, 34, of Earlham, died at the end of April just months after her dream wedding.
Amy was diagnosed in December and was left with limited mobility after the cancer spread from her lungs to her shoulder and spine.
Following her diagnosis, thousands of pounds were raised for Amy, her husband Gareth and their daughters Tian and Lexie.
Donations helped towards her wedding day at Lenwade House in February where Gareth described her as the 'strongest woman' he had ever met in his emotional wedding speech.

'She was our warrior princess,' she said. 'She put up such a brave battle with everything she went through and it is just such a sad time for everyone.
'All our thoughts have been with Gaz and the two girls but they have a lot of support and the response from everyone has been overwhelming. You never think you will have to plan a funeral for someone in their thirties and I am sure Amy never thought about it either.'
At least 22 of Amy's friends and family will take part in the Pretty Muddy Race For Life in Norwich this weekend to raise money for the funeral. They will all wear t-shirts with a photo of Amy and personal tributes to her.
The funeral will take place on May 17 at Earlham Crematorium at 3.45pm and the family has said Amy's friends are welcome to pay their respects.
The family has asked that people donate to Priscilla Bacon Lodge where Amy spent some of her final days instead of floral tributes.
