This year I am running a half marathon for The Christie Charity because I have realised that what they do really make a difference to patients and their families.
2016 took a toll on us all, but above all of the political happenings, my family was changed by something else. My Grandad lost his battle to cancer late last year after an arduous fight. During this time, The Christie provided care for him and my Grandma and managed to help keep them afloat, and my Grandad lived much longer and more healthily than any of us could've hoped. This is to show thanks for the effort that they put in and so that they can keep providing such great care for those affected by cancer.
