My story

[p]I am running the 2019 London Marathon for Bright Charity as they gave tremendous support and treatment when my mum, Cindy Friend was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer. The pioneering treatment received ensured she was able to lead a quality of life she wanted for a further two years and was in remission under the Bright treatment. However the disease returned and sadly spread to the liver and passed away in September 2017.[/p][p][br][/p][p]I am extremely thankful for the Charity to of been able to make more precious memories in the final few years of mums life, she was an inspiration to us all, her family meant the world to her, she was the greatest mum, and beloved Nanny to her three grandchildren which she adored. We all think about her every day and miss her laugh, smile and sense of humour. With the support Bright gave, I decided I wanted to run the London Marathon for Bright in memory of mum, ❤[/p][p][br][/p][p]Bring on on race day!
