My story

[p]Unfortunately I was unable to run the London marathon 2019 I was absolutely devastated , I had 3 prolapsed torn discs lower back , lowest was leaking and pressing on the nerve in my right leg ! So I could not walk [/p][p]This happened on my birthday which is the Saturday before the marathon, ! I’ve had it corrected and walking around now , I’m determined to be strong for next year ! Sorry I let you all down, but we have still raised a lot of money for these children , thank you all for your kind messages of support [/p][p]I am hoping to do you proud in the 2020 London Marathon , my 8th and Last London Marathon (London’s 40th ! ) and raise as much as I can for these children and their families [/p][p]with heart felt thanks for all your support over the years [/p][p]love wendy xxx[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]Every day 12 families in the UK receive the devastating news that their child has cancer. Through funding vital specialist research, Children with Cancer UK has done everything in its power to give these children the best chance to survive. [/p][p]With your support Children with Cancer UK can fund over 60 research projects across the UK accelerating breakthroughs to help drive up childhood cancer survival rates and find kinder, more effective treatments to reduce long-term side effects. This ground breaking research saves children's lives and would otherwise go unfunded. [/p][p]Knowing treatment can be especially challenging for family life, Children with Cancer UK also helps fund patient family accommodation near hospitals so families can stay together during their children's treatment. We also organise unforgettable days out for children and their families to create memories that will never be lost. [/p][p]But we still have so much more to do. A single child dying from cancer is one too many. With your support, we are helping to create a future in which every child with cancer survives and experiences the life changing moment when they ring the end of treatment bell.[/p][p]Thank you for helping to save the lives of children with cancer and keep families together.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Children with Cancer UK. [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
