Forever grateful

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014. Every time I got bad news I completely fell apart, but I was given so much support by the nurses and doctors at The Royal Marsden.

The staff really are amazing. The care and support they gave me was second to none.

Finally, after my mastectomy, I was given the all clear – such a momentous day!

I am running to give something back to the charity and to support others going through their own cancer journey. I am forever grateful.
