My story

[p]An update following my recent video upload...[/p][p]It’s great to have a laugh (especially at myself) but somedays it’s tough.[/p][p]If you are able, please donate to my marathon run in aid of this amazing charity. Their helpline provided my family with much needed support at a time when we desperately needed it.[/p][p]My wife Sharon had a hysterectomy in 2017 after a diagnosis of fibroids. 3 months later at her follow up, the consultant told her they had found a sarcoma and that her treatment would now be covered by the Royal Marsden. [/p][p]We had very little in the way of information. It turned out that while Sarcoma's are 1% of all cancers diagnosed... Sharon's was 1% of all sarcomas. This means that there is very little in the way of research and information. She still has tests every 3 months.. looking to see if it has returned.[/p][p]The Sarcoma Helpline was started in 2017 - just before Sharon was had her operation. I cannot put into words how much they helped. They knew who she would be seeing and what to expect, but more importantly they even provided much needed help, information & advice. [/p][p]This is the reason why I am dragging my carcass around London on 28th April. So that they can continue to help others [/p][p]Most of all, thank you for your support that I know that you will give. B x[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
