My story

[p]Over two years ago I applied to be in the 2020 London Marathon, and after many years of applying, I was really delighted to be given a lottery place! I set up this fundraising page back in 2019!!! and I trained from October 19 to March 20, but with onset of Covid-19, the London Marathon was cancelled just weeks before the event, so I was unable to complete my challenge and took down my fundraising page.[/p][p]However, with the restrictions lifting and sporting events back on, a new date for the Marathon has been set for 3rd Oct, And I have begun my training again. Albeit, with the constant thought that I may not get to run. But when my doubt or motivation have waned I just have to remind myself that my running could help to make a difference by raising money for a fantastic charity that supports children with cancer and their families.[/p][p]I am so motivated to support Children with Cancer UK, as cancer sadly affects so many lives, 1 in 2 people in the UK born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime. As a mother of two, I don't know how parents cope when given the news that their child has cancer. Sadly, every day 12 families in the UK receive this devastating news. Through funding vital specialist research, Children with Cancer UK has done everything in its power to give these children the best chance to survive.[/p][p]Today (8th Aug!), as part of my training, I completed my first half marathon length run, and it felt good to have been able to get that far. But with only 8 weeks until the marathon, I have a lot more training to do! And the discomfort from the run, helps me to remember those children who are feeling pain each day from their cancer. [/p][p]With your support Children with Cancer UK can fund over 60 research projects across the UK accelerating breakthroughs to help drive up childhood cancer survival rates and find kinder, more effective treatments to reduce long-term side effects. This ground breaking research saves children's lives and would otherwise go unfunded.[/p][p]Knowing treatment can be especially challenging for family life, Children with Cancer UK also helps fund patient family accommodation near hospitals so families can stay together during their children's treatment. We also organise unforgettable days out for children and their families to create memories that will never be lost.[/p][p]Thank you for helping to save the lives of children with cancer and keep families together. [/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you so much for any donations. xxx[/p]
