Story

In January 2017 the photo of me running went viral. This journey was never mine and never about me.  I got so many positive messages about the inspiration people took from my picture and the joy and achievement that was evident in my face.

I wanted to do something with the impact this made and something for good and to harness the power of social media for sharing positive stories.  There are far too many negative stories. so to celebrate the positive and bring some benefit from this.

Cancer was the starting blocks of my story and my journey so it seems only fitting they continue to be a part of it.

So for anyone inspired or touched by my photo I would like to ask if you would consider a £1 donation or less if that's more comfy to capture the impact of the photo and put it to good.

I will be forever grateful for the amazing messages and support, my journey for my better life won't be a quick one but it will be a joyful one and I would love to share it with you.

Thank you so much

Dawn Nisbet
