[p]In 2017 I was diagnosed with Stage 1A Melanoma which was swiftly removed. I count my lucky stars every day. But, for the first time in my life I struggled to sleep, was awful to be around and could not focus at work (especially when waiting for results). I can't begin to imagine what families go through when their child is given the diagnosis of cancer and therefore, Children with Cancer UK has been and will continue to be supported by myself and my family. I ran the 2019 London Marathon and am very much looking forward to raising more money for the 2020 run. [/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]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]
