My story

[p]August 2020: thank you so much to everyone who has supported my fundraising and training so far - I couldn't have got this far without you. [/p][p]Due to the pandemic, everything has changed with London 2020 and I will will doing a virtual marathon locally on 4th October. I will then get a chance to run a marathon in London sometime before 2023!!![/p][p]I have chosen to change my target to £3000 to support this amazing charity, especially as I now have more time to raise money![/p][p][br][/p][p] I can't begin to understand how it must feel to be told that your child has cancer. I can't imagaine how it would change my families lives to have to go through this and the subsequent treatment. But this is what happens to far too many people every day, including a friend of mine, who had a son in Beth's year at primary school. Fortunately he has now rung the end of treatment bell and things are looking good but it has been a long, hard, road to reach this point. This charity does amazing work supporting Children with Cancer and their families through such an awful time. [/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]
