In November I’m going to be putting a tick on my bucket list and running the New York marathon. The race is the same week as the 1 year anniversary of my mums death and so I thought it would be apt to raise money in her memory.
I’m raising money for Action Against Heartburn which is a group of charities that promote earlier diagnosis of oesophageal cancer. Persistent heartburn is the most common symptom of oesophageal cancer, however many people are oblivious to this. The campaign aims to raise awareness and encourage people to get the underlying causes of heartburn investigated. It also aims to raise awareness amongst health professionals to ensure that people are referred for appropriate tests (rather than being advised to take gaviscon!)
The money the campaign raises will help spread the word and save lives, and so any money would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading!
