My story

[p]In March 2017 I was diagnosed with bowel cancer. I had major surgery in April 2017 to remove four tumours and my colon, leaving me with a permanent stoma. After seven weeks I started chemotherapy; having struggled to eat and suffering sickness, I was about 43kg. The morning after my chemo I had a seizure induced by the medication and was taken into A & E Resus, 24 hours later I had a second seizure, followed by a series of four cardiac arrests. [/p][p]I was taken to the Intensive Care Unit and my family were told that they were doing all they could to stabilise me but ..... [/p][p]After a week in ITU I was moved back to a ward and ten days later I was discharged from hospital. [/p][p]I have always loved sport and when I was in ITU, I hoped that I could walk/ jog 5km within a year. I started walking- less than 50 metres, once a day at first! And very slowly increased the distance until I walked my first kilometre in September. I started swimming and cycling post-op in August and jogged my first kilometer in November.[/p][p]I gradually built up all the distances and entered my first Sprint distance triathlon for 1st April 2018.[/p][p]In 2018 I will taking part in various running, swimming & cycling events, including triathlons and my first Half Marathon, raising money for the Royal Surrey Intensive Care Charitable Trust each time. I will update this page when I have completed each event.[/p][p]Many thanks for supporting my page! All money raised will help save lives.[/p][p]Thank you :-)[/p][p][br][/p][p]Completed events:[/p][p]~Race at your Pace, January 25 mile virtual Challenge. 37 miles completed[/p][p]~My first Sprint distance triathlon, 1st April.
