Story

Thank you for visiting my page. Here is why I’m doing this.

In 2014 I was diagnosed with a Sarcoma Cancer. It changed my life. I had major surgery and will continue to have regular MRI's checks etc at The Royal Marsden in London under the care of the Sarcoma Team.

I made a promise that if I got to 5 years without a re-occurrence that I’d enter the London Marathon, well here I am in 2019 with a place running for Sarcoma UK.

Those of you that know me will know I’m not exactly “built to run” but with the help of decent trainers, my Freya sports bra and weeks and months of training I’m determined to get across that finish line, be it running, walking or crawling if I have to. Please help me raise as much money as possible. My children have had to cope with both their parents receiving a cancer diagnosis and I want to help raise awareness and survival rates. 

Sarcoma is a cancer of the bone and soft tissue. It is one of the hardest to diagnose, and difficult to treat. We can help change this. By donating to my page, you will fund vital research projects looking for better treatments. Your donation will also raise awareness of the symptoms of sarcoma to help patients get an early diagnosis, and ensure everyone has access to specialist advice.Thank you for your support.
