My story

[p]I have been lucky enough to have a Ballot place for the London Marathon on April 28th this year and I am raising money for an amazing local charity called Chemo Hero based in North Devon. This was set up by Lisa Wallis, the most inspirational young woman I have ever met. Lisa was diagnosed with cancer herself and set up Chemo Hero to provide "Boxes of Kindness" to those patients going into Hospital for their first session of chemotherapy. [/p][p]These boxes are full of a mixture of luxury items for patients to feel pampered and spoilt, some of the items will help them along their chemotherapy journey and others such as the thermometer in each box may literally save their life. Each item has been thought about and lovingly chosen by Lisa to support each patient. [/p][p]In February I held a quiz night at the George and Dragon in Ilfracombe and we raised a staggering £900 for Chemo Hero and i have already passed this over to Lisa. The boxes cost about £60 each to put together and every penny that you donate will help to fill more boxes. [/p][p]I am training really hard, and I have already completed one 20 mile training run, with another 18 miles this Sunday and 21 for the week after.[/p][p]I last ran the London Marathon in 1995 - and as this has been pointed out to me it was 24 years ago !! So the challenge is on to beat that time 24 years older ![/p][p]Please donate to this amazing charity if you can and I promise i will stop telling you all I am running the London Marathon !! [/p][p]Thank you xx[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
