My story

[p]Thank you firstly for visiting our JustGiving page. Matt & I are going to be running our first ever marathon for Brain Tumour Research and our aim is to raise £500 for this amazing charity! [/p][p]Brain tumours kill more children and adults under 40 than any other cancer and 16,000 people a year are diagnosed with a brain tumour. It is a terrifying disease that affects so many but only 1% of the national research spend on cancer is allocated to it. We want to do our little bit to help raise awareness and funding for this brilliant cause. [/p][p]Three years ago on her birthday, my mum was diagnosed with a Meningioma. She was unwell one morning and lost her ability to speak. Once she had been rushed to hospital and scans were completed it was discovered that she had a tumour that had been slowly growing for 20 years. We were incredibly fortunate that it was a low grade (benign) tumour but nevertheless it was an incredibly scary time for us all. My mum, throughout it all, remained optimistic and handled it all with strength and courage, so a marathon seems a small price to pay to show her how loved and appreciated she is! [/p][p]Please donate as little or as much as you can to support this amazing charity... and also to motivate us both through the long and, sometimes boring, runs! We really do appreciate all of your support.[/p][p]Sophie & Matt [/p]
