We fund pioneering research to save lives & improve outcomes.


In 2017 I ran my first ever Half Marathon and raised around £1200 for Bone Cancer Research.  I have come a long way since then with my running journey and finally I feel able to tackle the world famous Abbott Major TCS London Marathon on 23rd April 2023.

My career has enabled me to see and treat patients diagnosed with primary bone cancer. Sadly, children as young as primary school age are often receiving a delayed diagnosis as the cancer can initially present with innocuous discomfort and swelling leading friends, family and even General Practitioners to misdiagnose the true nature of the condition in its early form.... it is rare, but this means many GPs will not see a bone sarcoma in their career and so many children often present too late to Orthopaedic Surgeons for limb saving or indeed life saving treatment.

Part of my aim is to again raise funds for Bone Cancer Research, to try and highlight with friends and colleagues alike the lack of research funding given to this devastating area of the cancer spectrum and to try and raise its often overlooked profile.

Children and adults of all ages can develop bone cancer.

By kindly sponsoring me you will be giving money direct to a very deserving small charity helping raise funds for the unlucky children and adults who are diagnosed with this devastating condition - so thank you so much for all you are able to spare.... your kindness and contributions will 100% help motivate me through the winter to push through my training and hopefully endure the pain to finish the London Marathon on 23rd April and really help contribute to Bone Cancer Research's lifesaving financial support to affected individuals and families.

Thank you all again for your kindness.

(The Bone Cancer Research Trust is dedicated to saving lives & improving outcomes for people affected by primary bone cancer. Despite being small, they fund more research projects exploring primary bone cancer than any other organisation. Other large UK cancer research charities do not prioritise bone cancer patients, in 2019 just 0.028% of their research spend went to bone cancer – not even close to 1%! Last year alone, Bone Cancer Research Trust committed an incredible £807,824 to pioneering bone cancer research - to save lives!)
