My story

[p]I'm running my first ever marathon this year and feel very privileged to have a place in the great London Marathon. However, training for this event is no walk in the park as I'm spending most evenings and weekends pounding the streets in rubbish weather. I'm hoping that all this effort will see me through this great event on 28th April. I'm running this marathon to raise as much money as I can to support Breast Cancer sufferers through Breast Cancer Now which is a fantastic charity.[/p][p]Far too many of us are affected by Breast Cancer every year, either through friends or close family. It can and does have a devastating impact on sufferers and their families. One in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer during their life.Thankfully, because of research, more and more people are surviving. [/p][p]Thanks to research, more people are surviving breast cancer than ever before, yet there are still nearly [b]1,000[/b] women who die of breast cancer [b][u]every month[/u][/b] in the UK alone. [/p][p]Breast Cancer Now fund research as well as support. It is Breast Cancer Now’s ambition that by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live. Their research is focused on four key areas – risk and prevention, early detection and diagnosis, treatment and secondary breast cancer. They believe this approach to research will allow them to achieve their ambition and stop breast cancer taking lives.[/p][p][b]Find out more about each area of research and the work they are doing.[/b][/p][p][url=https://breastcancernow.org/breast-cancer-research]https://breastcancernow.org/breast-cancer-research[/url] [/p][p]Thank you so much for your support.
