We are moving further, faster to help everyone affected by a brain tumour


Last year I finished raising £23,000 when I had an initial target of £11.000 now I want to raise £88,970.  Why such a specific amount?  Well, last year in the US 88,970 people were diagnosed with a brain tumour of which 18,200 died. 

I was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2020 and since then I have had awake brain surgery, 30 sessions of radiotherapy and a year of chemotherapy.  Following 18 months of stable scans I want to do something again. 

My aim is to run a half marathon (October 2022) at Roundhay and then complete a few more, ideally leading to completing the London marathon. 

We need an extra £55,000 before then, so please be generous :-) 

oh, and I'll update my blog soon too.
