Pricey Runs the Marathon for Chordoma UK!

Dear All, 

On the morning of April 23rd,  I will be preparing my tiny little legs to run 26.2 miles for the 2017 London Marathon on behalf of the wonderful charity Chordoma UK. I was inspired to run for Chordoma after watching one of my best friends, run the marathon in 2015 in aid of his mother. Ollie's Mum Sue, was diagnosed with Chordoma in 2008, a rare primary bone cancer that can affect people of all ages.

In March 2013 Ollie's parents launched Chordoma UK with the aim of finding a cure and effective treatment for this relentless disease. I am absolutely honoured to be undertaking such a monumental challenge for such a cause, through which I hope to do them proud. 

Chordoma is a rare primary bone cancer, meaning that it arises in bone (rather than spreads to bone). The bones involved are those at the base of the skull, the vertebral bodies (back bones), and the bone of the sacrum and coccyx at the base of the spine. Chordoma is thought to arise from a persistent embryonic tissue (notochordal cells), which normally disappears before birth, but can persist in some people. However, the majority of individuals with notochordal remnants do not develop Chordoma. Chordoma is part of a family of cancers called sarcoma, which include cancers of the bones, cartilage, muscles and other connective tissue. Chordomas are generally slow growing, and tend to recur after treatment.

For more information regarding this terrible disease, please visit www.chordoma-uk.org or should you wish to support Chordoma UK and to help further research please send an e-mail to info@chordoma-uk.org 

The wine tasting aspect of my job is taking a back seat as I hit the streets of London in hope that it will help me over the finish line*. Please join me in raising both money and awareness for the crucial research of this relatively unknown cancer. There is little funding available for research into this relentless bone cancer mainly because it is relatively rare, occurring in only 1 in 800,000 of the population. Without a focused approach to raising money for research into chordoma, little will change quickly.

Any donation big or small is MASSIVELY appreciated, so please take a moment to donate. Your support and donations mean a huge amount and for that I am very thankful!

So much love to you all.

BIG KISSES
