Our very own Laura Evans will be running The London Marathon 2019 for the Breast Cancer Care Charity. Laura has been inspired by her mother Sue's fight against Breast Cancer and they really appreciate the support given to her by this amazing charity.
I have decided to run the London Marathon 2019 for my Mum. I am not a ‘natural’ runner but I wanted to give something back to Breast Cancer Care.
2018, for our family, has not been an easy year. In June, my amazingly strong mum found a lump in her breast, this was a massive shock to the whole family and was a struggle for us all to get our heads around. After copious trips to Plymouth for test after test she was diagnosed with Grade 2 Breast Cancer. In July, shortly after her 50th birthday, she underwent surgery to have the lump removed along with other procedures. Soon after the operation we learnt the cancer had spread to the lymph nodes and she would need to have Chemotherapy followed by Radiology. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy and its been tough on us all, especially her.
Breast Cancer Care have been amazing and supportive from the start. They’ve not only been there for my mum but have supported the whole family. They dedicate so much to those families going through similar situations to my mum. I am running the marathon to raise as much as I can for this amazing charity so that they can continue to help and support other people who need it!
