My story

[p]Hi![/p][p][/p][p]Please sponsor me to run the 2015 London Marathon. I want to raise as much money as I can to fund the vital research needed to find cures and treatments for blood cancers.[/p][p]I could barely run 5 Kms when I started my training in October, so this is a huge challenge for me! And I only have short legs![/p][p][/p][p][/p][p][b][span=text-decoration: underline;]WHY AM I DOING THIS?[/span][/b][/p][p][b][span=text-decoration: underline;][lt]br /[gt][/span][/b][/p][p]As many of you will know, my younger brother Josh was diagnosed with Stage IVB Hodgkin's lymphoma about a year ago. He was very ill; it was a huge shock to everyone![/p][p]A year or so of intense chemotherapy later, and Josh is on the brink of getting the all clear.* He is doing great. That he is still alive today is in large part thanks to the incredible research going on to find treatments and cures for all types of blood cancers, supported by charities such as the amazing Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.[/p][p]*UPDATE: Nov '14: Unfortunately we have just found out that Josh will be resuming his chemotherapy immediately as the lymphoma is still there. Extra inspiration to run for me and even more reason to donate for you![/p][p]You can read Josh's blog here:  [url=http://www.joshualerner.co.uk]http://www.joshualerner.co.uk[/url][/p][p][/p][p]Please dig deep - I will be at mile 25!! [/p][p]Thanks very much[/p][p]Tom Lerner[/p][p][/p][p]P.S. Please follow my Twitter tom_marathon (see the widget below) to send me tweets of encouragement to force me to go and run during the cold winter months![/p]
