Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The diagnosis of cancer has both a mental and physical impact on children, young people and their families and friends. The effects of that diagnosis and subsequent treatment is not always immediate and may emerge months or even years later.

That's why it's so important that children, young people and their families have access to services that can support their mental health after diagnosis. Unfortunately, this support can be difficult to access once treatment for cancer has finished. That's why Mind Over Cancer is such an important charity, supporting both the cancer survivor and those closest to them, when they need it. Offering funded counselling, support programmes and drop in services, the work they do is absolutely vital.

Many small charities are at risk with funding becoming more and more difficult to secure, so raising funding for them is vital to their survival

On April 7th I will be running the Brighton Marathon to raise, what I hope will be a ton of dosh for them, and I would love your support. It's a long way, and I have ever run that far before so it's definitely going to be a challenge. You'll be able to follow my training progress once I get started in earnest, so keep an eye out for those details. In the meantime, why not give the following videos a watch to learn more about Mind Over Cancer and our interview with Emily, a young person directly impacted by the work they do - they're definitely worth a watch.

I would love it if you could support me and this important charity, and the brilliant work they do.
