Anyone who knows my Alex knows he's like a rock - in temperament and build!

So when Alex told me he was running the London Marathon in 2024 for Brain Research UK, I was about as shocked as when he first told me had a brain tumour... Alex, the rock, isn’t built for running. Alex, my rock, is uncrackable!

We first found out about Alex's tumour in 2022 after his nipple started to leak... I was pregnant with our second, Oslo, at the time, and as sweet as the sympathetic side effects were, we knew he needed to get it checked out.

Fast-forward to the present, and Alex is no longer leaky but is on some pretty strong medication to (hopefully) shrink the benign brain tumour, and avoid surgery.

We aren't typically a sentimental pair, but I am so proud of how Alex has handled the highs and lows of treatment. All whilst being a brilliant Dad and continuing to run Heka (! And to top it off, he's been doing all that whilst training for The London Marathon (and the Vichy, Ironman 70.3).

Alex is looking to raise £4,000 for Brain Research UK, so they can continue their invaluable work. To help hit the target, we've organised a Family Fundraiser on Saturday 6th April 2024 at Gladstone Village Hall, Neston. If you you'd like to attend in person, you can buy your ticket via:

Or if you can't attend in person, please show your support here, via Alex's JustGiving page.

Thank you,

Steph Hind
