Bob Champion MBE will be starting the 100 Mile Carriage Drive from Layer Breton to Fakenham Race Course for Livvy’s Race Day on Tuesday 5th May 2015.
Olivia was diagnosed with chondroblastic osteosarcoma, a severe form of bone cancer, in the left pelvis in February just days after her fifteenth birthday. After 30 weeks of chemotherapy at UCLH the tumour had not shrunk so the only option was to undergo major surgery. On 3rd November Olivia had an 8 and a half hour operation in which her left leg, pelvis and sacrum were amputated.
Alan Coe will be driving several pairs of horses from The Hare and Hounds in Layer Breton, Colchester for over 100 miles non-stop to Fakenham Racecourse in Norfolk to raise funds to improve Olivia's life and to help raise funds for the Bob Champion Cancer Trust.
