My Story

It's been 6 years since we sadly lost my cousin Sophie to cancer when she was only 25 years old. Throughout her diagnosis and treatment she was supported by the incredible team at Teenage Cancer Trust. I am running the London Marathon 2024 to raise vital funds for those in need to make sure they are given the care and support Sophie was.

Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words “you have cancer”.

Cancer doesn’t just devastate their health. It threatens to take away everything they care about – their identity, their independence, and their dreams.

Teenage Cancer Trust funds specialist nurses, youth support teams and hospital units within the NHS to provide the very best care and support during treatment and beyond, making sure cancer doesn’t stop young people living their lives.

They’re the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need.
