EVENT DATE Nov 02, 2014

THE STORY:

I am running the New York Marathon for Children with Cancer. Lauren was 14 years old and touched my life for 6 months. She had a brain tumor and I helped all I could. She was so beautiful and fearless and always had a smile but sadly never made it. A year later, at 8.00pm one evening, there was a knock on the door of my practice. It was Lauren's Mum asking me to run some tests on her. The next day I referred Mum to a neurologist and 6 weeks later she died, also with a brain tumor. These two people were so brave, so strong at a level I cannot even imagine. Lauren's Mum actually sent me a card before she died thanking me for all I had done for them both. I did nothing. I was helpless. I looked after my own Mum as a young teenager and she passed away with Cancer when I was 15. Cancer has been a shadow in my life ever since and I want to stop feeling helpless and do something positive. I cannot do anything alone but together we can make a real difference. Please support me with as little or as much as you can. I am 60 next and have been given just 7 weeks to train for this event. If you want to sponsor me just to cross the start line, or do the whole run, or for me to die trying, I don't mind. Please help me give Children with Cancer more than just hope. Help me give them a chance of life. Thank You
