Cancer has affected both of our families and we have unfortunately lost loved ones from this cruel disease. We also have family members that have fought the battle with cancer and won and some who continue to fight!
As some of you may know at the end of 2017 we got the devastating news that Simon has been diagnosed with terminal cancer (but not only him, his Dad was diagnosed a couple of months before). Albeit such a shock to us, it's time to give something back, raise awareness and pursue a cure for this awful disease.
Since being diagnosed Simon has started chemotherapy and been entered into an immunotherapy trial at The Churchill Hospital. The treatment he has received has been second to none and is providing us with that precious time that we need with him and he is doing really well!
We have spent the past few months making the best memories and have been overwhelmed by the support and love from our family and friends. From a DIY SOS on the house so Simon does not have to worry about a thing, a trip to Ibiza, a trip to the Cotswolds, Simon and his son being able to watch their beloved Liverpool smash a win and above all, quality family time.
Running does not come naturally to either of us so it's time to start training and complete this run.
We are doing this for you Simon, keep fighting, we are all here, right beside you!
If you could put your hands in your pocket and help us smash our targets then it would be greatly appreciated. And if any of you would like to come and support us on the day please let us know so we can give you details!
