Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I was diagnosed in January 2014 with a tumour and subsequently Stage 3 bowel cancer. I had the surgery in Serbia ten days after this diagnosis, and a month later began chemotherapy, which lasted from February until August 2014. At the end of August I underwent several tests and it was shown that, for now, the cancer is now longer present. For the next couple of years I will have more tests every so often to see if this great news is still so...

I want to continue to run, having started it again, from scratch in September 2014. I ran the London Marathon in April 2015, and want to continue to build upon this, so I am now targeting the amazing Ring O' Fire event. Recent events have given me the motivation to put in the training time now to run for the benefit of others both through the raising of money to help as well as to demonstrate that one can recover and take such challenges on.
