It has been some time since I ran a half marathon, but I have decided to complete the St.Albans Half Marathon on Sunday 9th June, for a cause very close to my heart, to raise money for The National Brain Appeal. It would mean alot to have your support.

In June 2011, my wife Kate, received the shocking diagnosis that after feeling unwell for some time, experiencing deteriorating vision and headaches, she was suffering from a brain tumour. 

She was referred to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London, where she bravely underwent brain surgery, the first of 3 procedures to attempt to remove the tumour.

The amazing teams who care for Kate, her Consultant Neurosurgeon and his team, the nursing team on the Molly Lane Fox Ward, the MRI Department, The Neurology Clinics, the Neurology Pain Clinic, the Clinical Nurse Specialist, the UCLH Neuro Radiotherapy team and Moorfields Eye Hospital, all deliver amazing continuing care for Kate at the highest level and I have nothing but gratitude and praise for them all.

All donations will be gratefully received and be put towards a very worthy cause.

Thank you. Matthew
