My story

[p]In December 2019 I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a rare type of tumour called GIST in my small bowel. The tumour was surgically removed in January 2020 but I later discovered that the cancer had already spread to my liver, and is unfortunately incurable. [/p][p]I’m currently receiving treatment which aims to slow the growth and spread of the cancer, so for now I'm feeling fit and active - and hopefully I will get to spend a few more years with my family. [/p][p]I wanted to do something positive after what has been a tough couple of years. As this might be the last year I’m able to participate I decided to take on the London Marathon and the Great North Run, and am delighted to have joined the 'Children With Cancer UK' team, raising much needed funds for this amazing cause. As well as the runs, I have climbed Scafell Pike and will be tackling other challenges along the way.[/p][p]I obviously know how hard cancer can be as a patient, and I know how hard it is on family and friends, but I can't begin to imagine what it must be like to be going through this as a child, so I want to do anything I can to help improve the lives of children and their families affected by cancer.[/p][p]The London Marathon is a real bucket list event for me, and for anyone who has ran the Great North Run before - it's an experience like no other. [/p][p]It’s been nearly five years since I last ran in an organised event, on top of which I’ve put on a few extra pounds since initial treatment last year, so I’ve got my work cut out getting ready for the event. [/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations. If you want to follow my journey, I will be keeping this page updated and I’m on Twitter and Instagram at @gotthegistofit [/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.
