I am running the London Marathon 2019 for Cancer Research UK. In February 2009 my Grandad passed away after a long battle with cancer. It's not something I've ever been comfortable talking about and hopefully you'll understand that I don't now. I Just hope that by running the marathon in his memory - and for all the doctors and nurses who cared for him whilst in hospital and the hospice - that I'm making my Grandad proud.
A few months after I entered the ballot, my mother-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer. Fiona is one of the good people in life, so kind and caring, always putting others first. She is an absolute warrior and as I'm writing this, she has had surgery and completed all six of her chemo sessions.
It's not until you have visit a loved one in hospital or a hospice that you realise just how many people are affected by cancer. This charity is very close to my heart and your support and donations would be so appreciated.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.
