Beating Bowel Cancer
Beating Bowel Cancer is a leading national charity for bowel cancer patients, working hard to save lives from the UK’s 2nd biggest cancer killer which claims 50 lives every day. They encourage people to communicate frankly about all aspects of this disease, and not to be embarrassed to talk about bottoms and bowels! The charity aims to improve bowel cancer awareness amongst both medical professionals and the general public, by providing authoritative information about the disease, symptoms and the treatment choices available. They also offer support and help to anyone affected by bowel cancer

Hi! Thanks for visiting my page. In March 2016, my family heard the ultimate 'C word': Cancer. Bowel Cancer to be precise. And it's fair to say, life hasn't been the same since. The diagnosis was for my Dad. For those of you who know him, he is the picture of health, so to say this was a bolt from the blue is an understatement. The intervening months since his diagnosis have been a frustrating series of twists and turns and unexpected bumps, yet despite this, my Dad has remained his usual upbeat, optimistic, defiant self. He has been an inspiration to us. Dad is on a path that has no exit route, no escape ramp- he just has to keep on going, putting one foot in front of the other, until he reaches the end of this horrid journey and can put this behind him. When he was in hospital shortly after his diagnosis and his first operation, I vowed I would do something symbolic to support him and to help other families facing a similar plight. So, the mantra of putting one foot in front of the other equally applies to my challenge of running the London Marathon in April 2017, as it does to the challenge my Dad is facing. My challenge is optional however- Dads isn't- and that element of choice will be what keeps me going as I put in my training miles over the winter, knowing that giving up is simply not an option. I initially committed to raising £2000, but with the support of family, great friends and their wider network, I am delighted to have exceeded that within my first two weeks of fundraising! Now it's time to 'think big' and not set any limits to support Beating Bowel Cancer. Let's see what we can do! Thank you for any donations and support you are able to make. It means a lot and will spur me on to cross that finish line. Victoria x
