My story

[p]Marika has recurrent triple negative breast cancer. She was diagnosed in November 2016 and for the last year has had to go through all the diagnostics and then the treatment to try and cure this disease . She was very poorly during the year but has amazing strength of character and down right dogged determination to live her life to the full for as long as possible whilst continuing to fight this cancer. Marika and I have been running partners for years so when she said she wanted to run 3 marathons in a month I thought she was mad . imagine my surprise when Marika told me I will be running 3 marathons with her. I had no choice obviously so I will be with her every step of the way . Marika is on continual chemotherapy which comes with its side-effects and makes this an enormous task. She is however determined to complete all 3 races. Her dream to run London again has been granted by Faversham Running Club and for that we are so grateful.Marika has a limited life expectancy and her dream is to complete these races before she is unable to run anymore. [/p][p]We will be running these races for The Institute of Cancer Research. This amazing place is continually undertaking pioneering research in solid tumours like triple negative breast cancer. Amazing breakthroughs have been made extending women’s lives and improving quality of life. But there is so much that is needed to be done. There are at any time more than 36000 women in the UK living with recurrent breast cancer and the ICR is working tirelessly to find targeted treatments for this rare aggressive tumour.[/p][p]We know at any time it’s tough to find the pennies for sponsorship but please if you can spare a few quid for this amazing cause. All support will be gratefully received.[/p][p]Thank you for your support[/p][p][br][/p][p]William and Marika[/p]
