Story

One of my childhood friends has been given the most devastating news anyone can ever have to hear. Her husband and Father to her two young girls has a rare and aggressive form of pancreatic cancer. He is currently undergoing intensive chemotherapy, but this will not cure him. The NHS can only offer palliative care once this course of chemotherapy has finished, and sadly it looks as though the chemotherapy may have to be discontinued as his body cannot seem to recover from the damage the chemotherapy is causing.

However, there is hope! Emily and her husband Damion have been exploring other treatments and therapies from reputable clinics abroad. These treatments include immunotherapies, stem cell therapy, cryo-therapy, targeted chemotherapy, non-evasive radiation, regional and whole body hyperthermia, proton therapy and many others. They are trying to raise £70,000 in order to fund this and you can see their page here https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/damion-burbank-1

Me and my wonderful group of girls have decided to do the Rough Runner in Manchester in order to help raise some money to go towards Damion's treatment. We are prepared to get wet, muddy, sweaty and well and truly battered and bruised, but all for this amazing cause. All of the discomfort will be worth it if we can provide just a slight glimmer of hope for this beautiful family.

As our friends and family know, you are much more likely to see us lot with a glass of wine in our hands rather than racing around the countryside, so please dig deep!!!

    So you lovely lot, we've reached our target!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you. We completed Rough Runner.....10k, numerous obstacles, sunshine, and torrential rain. We attempted all the obstacles even if it meant having to swim out of them after spectacularly falling/slipping. We made it up the travelator after every single one of us face planted on the first attempt (I blame the weather 😜). Damion has travelled to Mexico and has started his treatment. He'll be able to continue his treatment because of you. Thank you all so much xxx
