My Story

Hi, I’m jo and some of you may know that 5 years ago my little brother Matt was diagnosed with a malignant melanoma to his left leg. This is a type of skin cancer and it’s prognosis is not good. He’s had lots of treatments (and been under amazing care even through covid) but sadly we were told only a couple of months ago that it had spread to his lungs (again), lining of his lung, brain, liver and possibly his bones. He is 35 and has 2 young children and an amazing wife. This will be so hard for us as a family but I want something good to come from it all so I’m running 31 miles in August. That’s a mile a day. I can do that. That’s nothing compared to what Matts doing. So, I know times are hard and money is very tight but anything you can donate would be massively appreciated and I’ll photo my 31 miles for Matt. 🙂
