My story

[p]The cover photo above shows Emma & myself at a friend's wedding in September 2017. [/p][p]Emma looks as beautiful as ever but the picture belies the terrible pain & distress Emma went through during 2017, following a bleed into her brain from a malignant melanoma tumour. The cancer had returned after 17 years, to devastating effect, leaving Emma totally left-side paralysed in February 2017.[/p][p]Emma fought so hard against the disease & initially with great success. Her determination was extraordinary, as she regained the use of her left leg & managed to walk short distances & even climb the stairs. Sadly, less than 2 months after the photograph was taken, Emma had another bleed into the brain & this time it was fatal.[/p][p]The family are still coming to terms with our loss but I wanted to do something positive in Emma's memory, so I am doing the[b] Great North Run[/b] on [b]9th September 2018[/b]; to raise money for 2 charities dear to Emma's heart. A separate web page "in memory of Emma" also exists & that will persist after this sponsorship event closes. That page provides more details about the chosen charities (there is a link to that page above). [/p][p][b]NB Donations made on this page automatically feed into Emma's "in memory" page[/b] but also show here as support for my half marathon run in September. I know many of you will have sponsored me before & many will have made donations at Emma's funeral, so I do appreciate that not everyone will be able to donate again. However, if you can manage to donate something, whatever the amount, I can assure you the money will go to 2 great causes.[/p][p]One final note. I am running this primarily for Emma but in recent years several friends have also been taken far too young; many of them due to cancer. So I will be thinking about Emma every step of the way but will also give a thought to several other special people, including Sue, Phil, Steve, Rob & Sarah.[/p][p]Thanks,[/p][p]Mike [/p]

I cannot thank you enough for raising money for EDSUK, as well as such a special charity. I would say ‘you really shouldn’t have’, but I know Em would have done the same! I hope you have recovered from the run, you made everyone very proud! X
