Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Tess and I are running the Birmingham half marathon in October (again). This time we have decided to raise some money for the Teenage Cancer trust.

For people that know us, you will know that Cancer has unfortunately affected people close to us. Both our loved ones were in their teenage years when they were diagnosed. Both have had to endure the traumatic experiences of hospitals, chemo, pain and the unknown realisation of 'am I going to survive this'?

As statistics still show, 50% of people diagnosed with aggressive cancer will not beat it. This statistic is true in our story. My friend unfortunately loss her battle with Cancer in 2011.

Tess's loved one, after a long time of treatments and worry is, fortunately still with us, showing that Cancer can be beaten :)

Please help us raise as much as we can to keep the research, treatment, staff and survival rates going!

Thank you

Jen and Tess x
