My story

[p]Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page, it is really appreciated.[/p][p]My passion for running has been part of my life for around 15 years now, the joy and euphoria I experience from being in the countryside away from the daily stress of the modern world has been a major factor in my survival; recently celebrating 10 years clear of secondary, stage four skin cancer (Melanoma) in my brain. [/p][p]At 35 years old, I was diagnosed with stage four Melanoma, the following 4 years proved to be the most challenging period of my life, through a relentless battle with recurring cancer finding random new homes around my body, with surgery being the only feasible treatment: finally concluding its journey in my brain. [/p][p]The surgery went remarkably well, but it was debatable as to whether the cancer was clear after the surgery, due to tissue damage, in the following months I was given a potential lifeline of enrolling on a final phase 4 drug trial for an immunotherapy drug, named ipilimumab.[/p][p]With the help, advice and encouragement from my family, friends, colleagues, doctors, health professionals, nurses, anesthetist & surgeons I am still here 10 years later, feeling the fittest I have ever been, in both body and mind. A sincere thank you to everyone for your support, you know who you are...[/p][p]On reflection, I have been able to keep a positive frame of mind throughout this ordeal, only having faltered occasionally. [/p][p]My determination to beat this terrible disease, has been driven by my love of running, so I am excited to run The London Marathon on Sunday 3rd October 2021, raising money for this wonderful charity, MacMillan Cancer Support, that personally provided me with some great help and advice, during the toughest period of my illness.[/p][p][i]MacMillan Cancer Support [/i] [/p][p][i]We're here to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can, providing physical, financial and emotional support. So whatever cancer throws your way, we're right there with you.[/i][/p][p][i]For information, support or just someone to talk to, call 0808 808 00 00 or visit macmillan.org.uk.[/i][/p][p][i]To give, fundraise or volunteer call 0300 1000 200 or visit macmillan.org.uk.[/i][/p][p][i]We are a charity registered in England and Wales (261017), Scotland (SCO39907) and the Isle of Man (604).[/i][/p][p]Your donation is really appreciated.[/p][p]Many thanks,[/p][p]Davo[/p]
