My story

[p]Hi, I’m Matt Hanson and I’m a consultant colorectal cancer surgeon at King George and Queen’s Hospitals for the last 8 years. I’ve been running for even longer, so when the opportunity came up to take part in the London Marathon for King George & Queen’s Hospitals Charity I jumped at the chance – to do something I love for a great cause.[/p][p]Originally from Halifax, I moved to London for medical school. I qualified from Imperial Medical School and soon discovered that surgery was my passion as it gave me the ability to operate on people to potentially transform their lives.[/p][p]Running is my other passion and I've run quite a few races from 10km to ultra-marathons. I enjoy running with friends and keeping fit. Recently I helped with a run for the theatre team at the hospital and I regularly run with a group called Advent Runners who run both on road and out on trails in some amazing locations.[/p][p]I’m asking you to help me raise £5,000. The money will go towards making our two hospitals even better…and also help support the colorectal cancer department and the work that we do. The NHS funds essential services but we are very grateful to King George & Queen’s Hospitals Charity who strive to provide extras to improve the experience of our patients, visitors and staff. Please sponsor me if you can and many thanks!![/p]
