I am running the Beachy Head Marathon for Bowel Research UK.
My father in law thankfully fully recovered after recent bowel surgery for cancer. Without the surgeons and doctors and research going into this, it would have been a very different story. I'm really proud of him and what he's come through and I want to help other families have the happy outcome we did.
I have also struggled in recent years with ulcerative colitis and know that without the medication and treatment available to me, I wouldn't be able to live a completely normal life. I know that a lot of people with inflammatory bowel diseases are not as lucky as me and if I can help in a small way to fund research into this for others it's the least I could do.
If you want to throw me a couple of quid towards a great cause that would be amazing. If it's too difficult to part with a little bit of cash, just think how much pain I'll be in on the day and I'm sure this will be worth every penny!
Thanks for taking time to care.
