Soooooo....I have decided to sign up for my first ever marathon on the 20th September! Stupid I know, but I wanted to challenge myself and raise some well deserved money for a very special cause.
I'm raising money for my dear friend who has been fighting Small Cell / Neuroendocrine Cervical Cancer since 2012.
Until recently, because of the rareness and low survival rates of this type of cancer, a large enough sample of patients available for clinical trials was impossible.
Now grassroots fundraising and Social media has helped identify enough patients internationally and a successful information website and International tumour registry has been established and headed up by Dr Michael Furmowitz, Associate Professor at the MD Anderson Centre in Texas.Their mission is to understand the most effective existing treatments, conduct meaningful research to better understand the biology of this cancer, and perform clinical trials utilising new and innovative treatments to improve survival.
I'm going to be making both my knees and my heart murmur very unhappy running 42km (26 miles) so please help me out by donating to this small but amazing project.
Lets help to keep the momentum with further expansion and research and work towards making a massive difference to the lives of many women, including my dear friend.

Thank you so much!!
Lots of love Faye xxx
