My story

[p]Hello![/p][p]Never one to do things by halves, here I am, signed up for the 40th London Marathon to be held on October 4th 2020. It wasn't what I planned to do last Friday, more a 'now or never kind of moment![/p][p]I am taking part to support The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) to do a little something to support them for the invaluable support they have been to me and my family in recent years. A childhood eye cancer survivor myself, my son was sadly diagnosed shortly after his birth, in 2017. He has undergone several treatments for his tumours, and thanks to the wonderful care he received, he is doing really well 😊[/p][p]Our support worker, Lesley, has been amazing throughout it all, and the charity as a whole does wonderful things; supporting families, raising awareness and aiding research into what is still a rare cancer.[/p][p]So, on October 4th I will have maximum of 24hrs to complete my 26.2mile marathon feat. I will be walking it for the most part, , as my dodgy knees would not cope with running it 😁 I've always wanted to achieve completing the LM, and so twofold reasons for signing up! It isn't going to be an easy challenge, I know that much. [/p][p]Pretty please with a cherry on top, support me in doing this by giving whatever you can towards my target. I'd love to smash it let alone reach it so it doesn't matter if it's pennies or pounds you are able to give. And spread the word for me too will you?[/p][p]On behalf of myself, Leo and CHECT, thank you ❤[/p]
