The awful C word is something everyone dreads to hear but unfortunately many people don’t just hear about it they live with the word too.
I wanted to complete this run for 2 people in my life who have been affected and for the many many people that have been affected too.
In 2019 my Uncle was unfortunately diagnosed with Oesophagus Cancer this has now resulted in regular chemo therapy and a life that will never be the same again for him and his family.
I will be running for my uncle Paul.
Later on in 2019 a good friend of mine was deemed with the awful news that her 3 year old little girl was diagnosed. This was a huge shock and a painful experience for the family to live through. Elsie is now thankfully in full heath and is living a happy healthy life. But none of this would have been possible without the amazing work of the Paim Brown Ward at Southampton General and the money raised by charities like these to gain all the support and treatment needed to get Elsie and many other young children the help and support they needed.
So please even if it £1 or 50p all the money we raise together will continue to support Doctors, Nurses, patients and their families to beat the awful C word!
