We have two very special friends who selflessly are wanting to share their story in order to raise money for this charity.
They are an amazing, inspirational, positive couple. We have set up this charity page Friends Against Cancer to enable all of our friends to help by donating in whatever way you can. Please read below......Thank you.
We’re currently training hard to run the London Marathon this year for our friends Paul & Melanie who were both diagnosed with cancer in 2014. Although both are only in their early fifties, fit and healthy, Paul was diagnosed with a rare and slow-growing form of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinaemia) in January and Melanie with pancreatic cancer in May.
While Paul’s chemotherapy-based treatment has yet to start, Melanie has undergone six months of aggressive chemotherapy and radiotherapy and is due to undergo further chemotherapy starting in Jan 2015.
Melanie and Paul’s story illustrates how cancer can strike anyone at any time and why it is important to raise funds for research into the disease and the development of new treatments. Please give us your support to help fund research into this disease that touches so many families.
