2019 I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma and Sarcoma. I began treatment just prior and into Covid lockdown. The impact of this was devastating to me and my family.
The sobering reality of not being able to be physically active which I’ve always maintained was the hardest aspect. Thankfully due to amazing treatment, support and good fortune this has not become the reality. In 2022 I cycled Lands End to John O’Groats and this year, on 2nd July I am taking park in UK’s IronMan. This is a first! I’ve trained since August last year.
Being a huge advocate for the importance of exercise, I want to raise money for Move Charity.
There's increasing evidence that moving more during and after cancer treatment can significantly improve physical & mental wellbeing. MOVE is embarking on a mission to support & inspire people to Move Against Cancer.
