Alison's Triathlon

I am attempting a triathlon for Médecins Sans Frontières (UK) because it's a challenge and a cause I really believe in.

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

A year ago I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

Because I live in the UK my cancer was found very early via free NHS screening. So I didn't need damaging chemotherapy or radiation and my prognosis is excellent.

I was treated swiftly and efficiently by our amazing NHS in a modern hospital.

If by any chance my cancer does return I know it will be picked up quickly and I will have access to first rate treatment.

Many people around the world can only dream of this level of healthcare. So I am fundraising for MSF because they work in incredibly difficult situations to help those people.

As someone who has never seriously done any running, cycling or swimming the idea of a triathlon is scary, but a challenge I'm definitely up for.

Thank you
