Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. I will be taking part in the Nottingham half marathon on Sunday 13th September 2009. I will be raising money for the Poppy Fields charity (more info below). I would be really grateful if you would support me by donating towards this worthy cause and support Poppy's Consultant Oncologist, Dr. Andrew Peet, in his research into Childhood Brain Tumours.

A beautiful little girl called Poppy Guilder (pictured to the left) was diagnosed with a brain tumour in March 2004 when she was only 14-months-old. To date she has endured 3 brain surgeries and 17-months of chemotherapy. She started another course of chemotherapy in January 2008. It was found out on April 21st , the same year, that this treatment failed. Poppy has just completed a 28-day course of radiotherapy, and is now waiting for a scan date to see if this treatment has worked.

As a thanks for the excellent care Poppy has received at Birmingham Children's Hospital, her charity Poppy Fields was set up in April 2004. To date over £80,000 has been donated to the hospital.

Please visit the website to find out more information.

Any donations made through this site will go directly to Dr. Peet's Research Fund at the hospital.

Many thanks,
Stuart
