[p][i]On the 1st of May I will be running the Milton Keynes marathon.[/i][/p][p][i]I’ll be running for a charity that’s quite close to my heart in that my nephew was diagnosed with [/i][i]Ewing's [/i][i]Sarcoma back in 2010. This is an aggressive form of bone [/i][i]& soft tissue [/i][i]cancer that affects [/i][i]children, [/i][i]teenagers and young adults. [/i][i]About 80 are diagnosed each year, but because of the small number diagnosed the large trials take over decade to complete.[/i][/p][p][i]Kieran's treatment meant he had his leg amputated [/i][i](2011 aged 12), had a stem cell transplant and part of his lung removed (2013 aged 14)[/i][i] and has also had [/i][i]intensive [/i][i]chemotherapy[/i][i], through all of this he trained first as a gymnast [/i][i](achieving British Wheelchair Acro Champion with 8 tumours in his lungs)[/i][i] and then as a [/i][i]T42 [/i][i]sprinter with the goal of getting into the Paralympics in [/i][i]Tokyo[/i][i].[/i][/p][p][i]Unfortunately the cancer returned last year and is now untreatable. Kieran has been inspirational in the way he has dealt with this terrible disease and it's a testament to him that he is now working hard to fund-raise [/i][i]for a researcher [/i][i]to prevent any more children going through what he [/i][i]now [/i][i]has[/i][i] and to raise awareness of childhood cancer[/i][i].[/i][/p][p][i]I’m therefore raising funds in the hope that others can be helped through research and in raising awareness of the disease.[/i][/p][p][i]If you’d like to know more about the charity’s goals there is a link below.[/i][/p][p] [/p][p]The charity page and also Kieran's are below.[/p][p][url=http://www.cclg.org.uk/]http://www.cclg.org.uk/[/url][/p][p][url=https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.cclg.org.uk_KieranMaxwellLegacy&d=DwMFaQ&c=dCBwIlVXJsYZrY6gpNt0LA&r=4K_URYB-jFWRd36urh9KqIKFO541P-NcyZUd0eTDyM8&m=IzRVrdGlu7fWZDHVIvl4Xs8AjKX_wMlUXVpjholGq94&s=RBF-ELPxaUmDTjoHkhJg-CuaGEMs4fOCeq-MFHm1GP8&e=]http://www.cclg.org.uk/KieranMaxwellLegacy[/url][/p]
