Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My wonderful friend Katherine, who I met on my first day of university and remained great friends with for over 30 years, died of mesothelioma in August 2019 at the age of 49. Not a day goes by when I don’t think of her and the fun times we shared and the major life events we supported each other through. She was the loveliest, kindest, most positive person you could ever hope to meet and I’m doing this for her and to help others like her who have been exposed (probably unknowingly) to asbestos.

After cancellations (Covid) and a deferral (fear!), I'm excited to be running the London Marathon 2022 for Erase Meso, a small charity dedicated to;
 1. Raising funds for asbestos cancer research
 2. Raising awareness of mesothelioma
 3. Providing hope for mesothelioma sufferers
I'd be incredibly grateful if you could sponsor my running efforts. If you donate you'll be contributing to much needed research for a cure.
Despite being banned in the UK in 1999, asbestos can still be found in many homes, schools, and hospitals. Many of these buildings were built in the second half of the last century when we were at the peak of importing asbestos into the country. A recent BBC inquiry found that nine out of 10 NHS hospitals still contain asbestos.

This devastating disease kills a similar number of people to other cancers, such as skin cancer, yet investment into research is severely underfunded. Finding new and effective treatments is absolutely crucial if we are to save thousands of people who are at risk of developing mesothelioma.​
ANY contribution will help fund a cure - or at least a way of managing mesothelioma...
THANK YOU very much - any money you give goes straight to mesothelioma research - as Erase Meso is a charity run exclusively by volunteers.
Best wishes, Nicky x
