I'm running the London Marathon for Cancer Research UK. Together we will beat cancer!

In memory of

Robert (bob) Brown

I am raising money for this amazing charity in memory of my father inlaw Bob Brown, i will be running the london marathon to raise as much money and awareness as i possible can! Bob lost his battle with cancer on 26th november last year, i spoke with him before he died about running the london marathon for this amazing charity, a chance to give something back, but i didn't get offered a place, which was a shame at the time, i thourght if it was ment to be i would of got a place!! Then yesterday out of the blue i recieved an email saying we have a place for you!! "That's bob looking down on me" Of course i jumped at the chance!! I have ran alot of marathons, mainly for my self, my own personnal goals, but this is very different, this means the world to me, to be able to give something back, and i will run everysingle mile with bob firmly in my heart & mind, his two daughters emma and kate, and his grandson bobby will be there cheering me on, hopefully his wife maria will be there too, it breaks my heart that he wont be there, but i know if he was he would be bloody proud, this is for him, my father inlaw has always been good to me, ever since i met him over 13 years ago, he is the kindest, the funniest, the most down to earth guy ive ever met, he was a family man, through and through, ive never met anyone who adored his kids as much as he did, as a family we are all there for each other, always have always will be, its been so hard since we all lost him, but his memory has to be carried on, so many people are effected by cancer, i hope and pray that one day they will find a cure, until that day all we can do is help these charitys, by spreading awarness and rasing money, in any way possible, this time last year none of us even knew he had cancer, it all happened so fast, throughout his chemo and all of his treatment, even on the tough days when he was really poorly he never moaned, not once! he always said he was fine, "i just want a cup of tea with two sugars he would say" , i will never forgot all the happy memories of him!! So please help me to raise as much as possibe for this great cause, i know we all get asked so much these days to donate, these just giving pages have become so popular, and help to raise so much for charity, if you know me, if you know my family or anyone who's been effected by cancer you will fully understand why i am doing this, so any donation how big or small will be very much apprechated!! If you don't want to donate, thats fine, i understand, just please remember that without these charitys we never stand a chance of beat this!! Please feel free to follow my journey, all the training for a marathon and actually running it isnt really the challange, its just a great platform! its raising awarness and donations thats really going to make a diffrence, i can run a marathon anytime, but this time is for bob!
