Story

UPDATE: I felt considering the overwhelming support from everybody, i should put in a bit more effort, so now i am going to be running the Munich half marathon in October too, so basically thats a whole marathon (just with a month inbetween the two halves....). Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far, and please keep the donations coming in!

 

Hello, im Vicky and im a cancer research scientist working on finding out why people get leukaemia.  I am also a leukaemia survivor of 17 years (and counting), so this is a cause very close to my heart and the work of this charity is probably the reason why I am still around today.  I owe them a lot.  Research is vital to helping more people survive this terrible disease, but as i know from first hand experience it is so expensive.  We must keep fundraising, researching and at somepoint in the future there will be no more deaths due to cancer.

Thanks,
Vicky xxx 

P.S. if you would like to keep up to date with my running / science - please feel free to follow me on twitter @vickyyyf and say hi!
