I'm running the London Marathon for Cancer Research UK to beat cancer sooner

In memory of

My sister, Joanna

I am running in memory of my eldest sister Joanna who, aged just 42, passed away in April 2017.

The idea there is research taking place which could help prevent or stem the effects of cancer is an amazing thing. I am not one for dwelling on what might have been but I am fully behind supporting more research which could help stop all types of cancer in their tracks.

Like many other runners, I am taking this as an opportunity to join in the support for Cancer Research UK to help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

If you are able to make a donation, of any amount (and can Gift Aid it too), I will be very grateful. Every penny helps.

Please let me know if you would like to help me raise money with any extra events. I would be further grateful if you share this link to anybody who may wish to make a donation.

Your support, in whatever form, will absolutely motivate me through the next few months of training and, of course, on the day itself in April.
