My story

[p]Eight years ago, I ran my first Great North Run for Kent Air Ambulance. When I'd finished I said to my Step Mum, "Let's do it again in 2018, when I turn 50 and you turn 70." However, we did it again in 2013! [/p][p]Back in 2010, I couldn't have imagined what would happen in those intervening 8 years... On 9th September 2018 I will be running The Great North Run, one more time; yes, as a promise to my step Mum, but more importantly, for two charities that mean so much to me now. [/p][p]In December 2014, within 4 months of each other, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, a dear friend had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and another friend, I was at Marden Primary school with, had been diagnosed with bowel cancer.[/p][p]A [i]Saints and Sinners[/i] cricket match was held in Marden in 2015 to raise money for Cancer Research dedicated to the three of us. Now I'm the only one out of the 3, still here. That hurts, in a way I cannot describe.[/p][p]So this is my way of trying to get my head around this bloody awful disease and hopefully raise some money at the same time, for Pancreatic and Bowel Cancer.[/p][p]Elliot Mantle and Mark Judd, I think of you every day..... [/p][p]Trudi xx[/p][p][br][/p]
