    Weʼve raised £1,080 to donate to Cancer Research UK and the Dunstone Bennett Complementary Centre

    Funded on Sunday, 9th October 2016

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    In April 2014 I was diagnosed with lymphoma (cancer of the lymphatic system). Thankfully, after six cycles of chemotherapy I went into remission and was given the all clear.

    While I was ill, my lovely sister ran a marathon and raised over £2000 for MacMillan. At the time I decided that when I was well enough I wanted to run a half marathon. This gave me something to focus on, and also acts as a good indicator of how far I’ve come since I finished having chemo. I will be running the Windsor half marathon on 25th September with my sister Clare and brother Daniel.

    As well as the amazing support my family and friends gave me while I was ill, I am also very grateful for the treatment I received from a local charity called Dunstone Bennett, who provide complementary therapy for cancer patients and their relatives. This really helped me to cope with the horrible effects of chemotherapy, and the difficulties that come with fighting an illness like cancer.

    We will be donating the money we raise to Cancer Research UK and the Dunstone Bennett Complementary Centre. Please sponsor us whatever you can to help raise money for these worthy charities.

    Thank you :)
