My story

[p]Hey Everybody![/p][p][lt]br /[gt]Firstly welcome to my Virgin Charity Page![/p][p][lt]br /[gt]As you may or may not know, this year in the month of April, I have stupidly chosen to run the London Marathon.[/p][p][lt]br /[gt]You may be asking why would I do something so ridiculous? Well...I have always wanted to give something back to the team that helped me through my tougher years, when I was diagnosed with Cancer many years ago. This was the team at Teenage Cancer Trust![/p][p][lt]br /[gt]If you don’t like **** stories, I suggest you stop reading now! Tissues ready...?[/p][p][lt]br /[gt]In 2008 instead of going away on a super adventurous gap year like a normal student, looking to extend my horizons ya, I decided I should spend some time in a hospital bed and survive cancer! Classic...[/p][p][lt]br /[gt]It was a rubbish idea really, many forms of chemo passed through my body, and, If I am honest I was not feeling fresh for many months. Times got worse before they got better, I reacted to a dose of chemo, giving me a small bleed in my brain and as a result I lost control of my arms, legs and mouth. With time, things slowly got better, and after about 4 to 5 months in hospital I finally saw some light and after a 5 year period all was well![/p][p][lt]br /[gt]Moving on to today, I am 6 years the other side, out of remission, feeling fresh and well! This was only possible due to the amazing staff and team at the Sheffield Hallamshire Hospital as well as the Teenage Cancer Trust.[lt]br /[gt]So to give something back, I am running the London Marathon in 2016 for The Teenage Cancer Trust!!![/p][p][lt]br /[gt] I would be delighted if you guys could sponsor me. Any amount to keep that slim chance of a smile on any kids face when facing Cancer! The Charity's activity really makes a difference, keeping you entertained in the hospital, taking you on trips and giving you support throughout the process.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]I hope you all are well and thank you in advance for your donation.[/p][p]Kind Regards Max [/p]
