In 2012, at the age of 36 (with a 1 year old baby) I found a hard lump in my breast (a 5.4cm tumour) and learnt that I had stage 3 breast cancer that had spread to the lymph nodes.  I went through a challenging 7 month period that included a total mastectomy, reconstruction, chemotherapy and radiotherapy and I feel so blessed to be here today, engaged in my life with my family.  My husband David and I are running the marathon to appreciate the work of those awesome charities (specifically Against Breast Cancer) that carry out research and support breast cancer patients (both physically and psychologically).  I would like to acknowledge each and every person who supported me through this period.

We are running in memory of our dear friend Ram Chander, who left this earth on January 21st after a valiant battle with this horrible disease... his humble, honorable, faithful presence put good into every life he touched. This is for you Christine, Neal and Sid.

Please give generously to support Against Breast Cancer and this significant cause!

Virgin Money London Marathon 2019

The Virgin London Marathon starts in Greenwich Park, next to the Greenwich Observatory. Runners then make their way through Woolwich, past the Thames Barrier and then Cutty Sark. They will then continue towards Bermondsy. At the twelve-mile point they will see Tower Bridge, which they cross before turning right towards Canary Wharf. Next on towards Limehouse and the 20-miles stage, where many runners may 'hit the wall' as their bodies run out of energy. Those who continue will pass the Tower of London, run along Embankment, past the Houses of Parliament and past Nelson's Column reaching the final 500m along Birdcage Walk, past Buckingham Palace and over the finish line to the sound of well-deserved cheers
