Story

What would happen if one day you wake up and all the sudden the world around you collapse, you start panicking, you don’t know what to do and you are scared for your children and your future?

I’m lucky enough not to have experienced anything as so distressing as being diagnosed with a cancer! However, not everyone is as lucky as me, there are still millions of people suffering of cancer diseases and unfortunately they are in tremendous pain.

But they are not alone!! We all can do a little something to help them!

I’m not a good runner, actually, to be honest, I don’t like it at all! Despite it, I have decided to run....a lot!! in order to fundraising money for Neidao.org, which is an Italian charity that aims to deepen the research and study on the countless applications and benefits of the practice of Qigong, an ancient Chinese discipline. Neidao association works with the Integrated Center of Senology, of the Gemelli Hospital in Rome, supporting Healthcare Professionals, cancer patients and their relatives.

My aim is to raise at least £1,000 which will be given to Neidao in order to support the organisation of training sessions for cancer patients. Those sessions can help them in the fight against their disease, relieving important cancer-related symptoms such as fatigue, sleep disorders, depression.

Why I’m doing it? Life sometimes is not fair and one of my beloved sisters (in law) is now fighting her battle against the cancer! I love her and the only thing I can do to truly support her is run!

I will run the 10k London Vitality Run on Monday 28 May 2018; the Richmond Park Half Marathon on 1 July 208 and the Valencia Marathon on 2 December 2018!.....and maybe even more!!

Help me to raise 1,000£ and more, I'll personally transfer all money raised (minus any fee from justgiving) after the Valencia Marathon!

    Yesterday I run my first marathon, it was such a great event, but was painful, stressful and at some point not much fun. After 35km I was close to quit, every single muscle of my body was complaining and made it very clear to me that I'm not born to run! I didn't give up, I couldn't do it and even if I could I wouldn't, I thought about Rebecca, the pain she has been through and I felt ashamed of just thinking to quit! She is strong and a great example for us. In the next weeks I'll transfer all the donations to the Neidao foundation.

    On September 30 I have achieved another milestone, the Ealing Half Marathon in 1:54:34, an outstanding result for an amateur runner like me! But most importantly today 15 October my sister (in law) had her second last cycle of chemotherapy! Almost there! She is the most amazing woman I know, strong and always positive, I'm learning a lot from her, an example for us all! My next challenge is in 47 days, the Valencia Marathon on 2 December! Thanks to all of you for your donations: £841!!!! However, it's not over yet, you can still donate!

    Another medal added to the challenge!!! but most importantly 821£ raised so far!!! Wow. The chemio therapy is not over yet, but going well, still very tough but the light at end of the tunnel is brighter!! To continue my support I've added two races to my challenge, I did a Triathlon Olympic distance (1500m swim, 45km cycling and 10km run) and at the end of September I'm doing the Ealing Half Marathon. Every single euro/pound you donate will go to Neidao to help people in distress to manage their pain and their emotions! Grazie e tutti! Luca
