I’m raising as much as I can to beat cancer

In September 2019, my dear mum was diagnosed with bowel cancer. Thanks to all the research that has taken place before now, efforts can be made to help her fight this disease. By donating to this page, the entire sum goes directly to Cancer Research UK where it will be used to fund vital research to improve the survival rate and life expectancy of cancer patients in years to come. Over one third of people are diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, but nearly everyone will experience the difficulty of having a friend or loved one diagnosed at some point.

Since diagnosis, my mother has not once felt sorry for herself because she knows that cancer does not discriminate. She is the strongest person I know and her ability to keep positive is one of the many reasons I am proud to be her son. If she can take on this challenge, then there is no reason I should not take on this one. I will be running the Brighton Marathon on 19th April 2020 to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Any donation is appreciated, large or small. Together, we can beat cancer.
