My story

[p]In February 2017, I was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer which required months of robust chemoradiotherapy treatment which I received at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle. During this time, I received exceptional care and first class treatment from the Head and Neck Cancer Department. This department is massively supported by the Northern Head and Neck Cancer Charity which is a small, local charity organised by a team of volunteers. As a result, all funds raised go directly to the charity itself and not to figureheads. The aim of the charity is to make life better for those diagnosed with head and neck cancer, to heighten awareness of the disease, enabling faster detection and early stage treatment.[/p][p]This year, I have been entered into the Great North Run through the charity. However I have learned in recent weeks that my illness has returned which is terminal meaning it will be highly unlikely I will be able to compete in the GNR. [/p][p]With the help of my running club,Tyne Bridge Harriers, I have arranged to complete my own charity run 'The Geordie Run'. This run will take place at 10am on Sunday 2nd June, starting and finishing at our club base in Byker taking in many landmarks of the city. The run will not be of half marathon distance but will certainly be a challenge to myself due to my current condition.[/p][p]Any donations to this very worthy cause will be put to very good use and will be greatly appreciated![/p]
