    Weʼve raised £1,660 to help fund Abi's cancer treatment

    Funded on Sunday, 30th April 2023

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    As many of you will know I am running the Brighton Marathon on Sunday 15th April. I am doing so to raise money for my friend Abi, to help fund her cancer treatment, therapies, and transport costs.

    Abi was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a blood cancer which caused a large 11cm tumour to develop in her chest two years ago. The cancer is a particularly stubborn and aggressive form of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and has been resistant to three rounds of chemotherapy and one form of immunotherapy. She is currently having to fund the immunotherapy drug Nivolumab herself (at a cost of around £5000 a month) because the drug isn't licensed to her on the NHS - as she hasn't technically 'relapsed' from the cancer.

    She is an amazing singer-songwriter who herself has taken part in numerous charity fundraising events (even during her treatment!); I'd encourage you to read and share her raw and wonderfully written blog about her experiences:

    As Abi is a musician I thought that I would ask people to suggest a song to go on my marathon playlist - you may choose to help or hinder me! No matter how small, all donations are much appreciated. Thank you x

      A very long overdue update…8 weeks ago I managed to complete the 26.2 miles of the Brighton Marathon in 3 'short' hours & 55 minutes. There were so many emotions - both smiles & tears - & quite a bit of pain (and I definitely didn't get the memo about ‘smile points’!) on the way round. A big THANK YOU to everyone for your kind donations, support & song suggestions, they were all much appreciated. I managed to raise a total of £1759.47 from online & bake sale cash donations, a totally overwhelming amount - thank you all so much! xxx
