Story

Thanks for stopping by!

my name is Fran, also known to my cosplay friends as 'Kitteh'. I am raising money for Brain trust to support the amazing work they do for very personal reasons as I myself had a Olgiodendroglioma Grade II removed in June 2013 (The tumour has been dubbed Frank) I have been very lucky as I have as of yet not needed any further treatments but I am as a consequence now epileptic. 

 

I am running the half-marathon to show my tumour that despite everything that has happened and will happen it has not got me down! I am still in charge and still have a smile on my face and that will never change! 

i have set myself an additional goal: if this page gets to beyond £1000 I will run the half marathon in costume!! There will be a vote on what costume to wear at a later date if I get that far ;) there will be a selection to choose from ;) I will add the disclaimer that I may have to modify the costume to make it comfortable to be able to run in, so nothing completely ridiculous ;) 

 

Thanks again for your support!! I will make you all proud :)

It takes more than this to bring a Jedi Knight (or indeed a Sith Lord, a witch, a Judge, a Mandolorian warrior, or any other variety of sci-fi awesomness) to their knees... ;)
