That lovely grey wig (pictured) belongs to my Mum.
Her Breast Cancer was successfully treated some 18 years ago. My sister was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago and is currently having treatment (she didn't want to borrow the wig). Tragically, my lovely friend Ruth died in 2018 after her breast cancer got the better of her. Ruth threw herself into things and I know she'd approve of this little run.
We all know someone affected by cancer or someone taken too young. Current treatments are not pleasant and not always successful, so please help me to raise money so we can fund research into some better treatments for future generations.
I was very surprised to get a ballot place for the London marathon. It will be my first marathon and the only one I've ever wanted to do after watching my dad run it in 1986. So.... all that's left to say is ...I'll see you at mile 23 with some jelly babies and a banner? #teamjo
