I am running in memory of my much loved sister Sue and raising as much as I can to beat cancer.

In memory of

Susan Marshall

07 Aug 1972 - 07 Oct 2016

My amazing sister Sue Marshall was only 42 when she was diagnosed with cancer, blossoming into motherhood with her two and a half year little girl Isobel and her husband Vic. Nothing could of prepared her for the journey she was about to face. She had always looked after herself, and was a very strong and competitive runner. Sue discovered a lump on her chest and started getting unusually out of breath, she booked a visit to her GP, who suggested having a chest x-ray just to be cautious. Unfortunately the x-ray confirmed widespread tumours and further investigation and tests confirmed Ewing's Sarcoma, a condition rarely seen in adults.

An initial six rounds of chemotherapy showed very strong results, way beyond expectations, which allowed family life to continue a little longer. The therapy was grueling; however Sue never let this interfere with being the most fantastic mother she could be to Isobel and wife to Vic. She still got involved in trips to the zoo, theme parks, local toddler groups and just being round her friends and family, which Sue valued more than anything. Sue continued with the chemotherapy and exhausted six different lines of treatment over a 30 month period until all treatment options were eventually exhausted.

Sadly, Sue lost her fight and she slipped away peacefully on the 7th October 2016 with her husband and mother in law who she treasured dearly by her side. Isobel will always know her mummy is being looked after by the Angels and how courageous she truly was.

To this day Sue is greatly missed by all her family and friends and a message to Vic, Sue will be so proud of how you are raising Isobel you are one amazing person love you always bro!

Cancer is happening right now and affects so many peoples lives, which is why I’m raising money right now for Cancer Research UK. There’s no time to lose!

Hi all, i did it! i made it round but it was tough, unfortunately on my last practice run on the thursday before the race my ankle went! I rested it for the 3 days i had before the race but it was still a bit sore at the start of the race, I was doing okay running at a good pace until i got to 6.5k and then my ankle went again! it hurt but i managed to jog at a slow pace and I kept going with pure determination thinking of my sister and all the people that supported me and i crossed the finish line eventually at 1 hour and 24 minutes woo hoo. Thank you so much to everyone that supported me it means so much to me and my family. x
