I’m doing The Marsden March to raise money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. On Sunday 19 March I’m aiming to walk 14 miles in recognition of the amazing care and support I’ve received from the Royal Marsden (as well as the hospital in Basingstoke where I had my operation) over the past year.
On the day of the 2016 Marsden March I was an inpatient at the Royal Marsden in Sutton and struggled to walk 100 yards from my bed to applaud the participants as they finished. By mid-October after my operation it took me 10 minutes to get out of bed and there was no way I could walk even 14 steps. So 14 miles is a big challenge for me, but one I think well worth meeting to help fund more research into this horrible disease that unfortunately we are all going to be impacted by at some stage in our lives.
The Royal Marsden are a world-leading cancer centre who pioneer new treatments that save lives. They use their research every day to provide the very best in diagnosis, treatment and care for cancer patients. The revolutionary way they treat people in their hospitals has far-reaching impact, nationally and internationally.
Please sponsor me to walk The Marsden March and help The Royal Marsden build a future beyond cancer.
