Story

Every year as a child I would join my brothers and cousins to support the London Marathon. We would line the streets cheering on the runners while giving out oranges and water! We were in awe of the runners. The atmosphere, determination and feelings of positivity I will never forget.

I have always dreamed of taking part myself and now in my 45th year I have been fortunate enough to get a place. Remarkably my two brothers have also got a place so we get to do this together.

I'm going to be taking on the world's most famous 26.2 miles on Sunday 2 October for The Brain Tumour Charity.

As a doctor in Critical Care I frequently see the devastation caused brain tumours -  often in young adults and children. I have also seen the amazing treatments available and shared in some wonderful recoveries and success stories.  We have also had personal experience within our family - I am delighted to say because of intensive treatment and surgery our family member has made a fantastic recovery living a normal and fulfilling life.

By running for The Brain Tumour Charity I hope to play a further part in The Charity's movement to defeat brain tumours sooner - by moving faster and further to find a cure. COVID-19 had a huge impact on all charities, but heading into 2022, events like the London Marathon will be back in full force and I can't wait to take the course on and do my bit #ACureCantWait
