    Story

    Ben Milner is fighting cancer. He had his kidney along with the primary tumour removed but the secondaries in his chest are not operable and as chemotherapy is not viable either, treatment options in the UK are limited. He has been on a clinical trial drug for the last year and this along with various alternative therapies seem to have kept him stable but he has now been taken off the trial as the detrimental side effects are outweighing the benefits. As there are no more options available for Ben in the UK he is embarking on treatment at a private clinic in Germany (Dr Herzog) which offers pioneering treatments for all kinds of cancers, often with incredible results. We are certain this is Ben's best chance to beat his cancer and to live more comfortably and happily with the effects of the disease. Ben has come back from the clinic looking and feeling better already but a 3 week stay has cost £20K and he will need several more visits.

    I would like to raise some money to add to the fund that Ben's family has set up. I have recently started running and have registered to run a 10K race in Regents Park on 8th January 2017. This doesn't give me much time to get fit enough, but time is of the essence, and I think I can just about do it!

    Please sponsor me to do this for Ben and his family.

      Thank you Diana and Kate lovely to hear from you! I have in addition been generously challenged by Tom Swain. He has pledged to sponsor me £100 for every 10k race I run for Ben. So as a result I am registering to do The 10k Mornington Chaser in Regent's Park at the beginning of February, and the beginning of March too.
