Karen Woodford Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I’m raising money for Bowel & Cancer Research because I believe the research projects they support are very important and could create a future free from bowel cancer or chronic disease.

Back in 2013 my Father-In-Law was diagnosed with Bowel cancer, he also discovered that he was Celiac. He underwent treatment and an operation that nearly took him from his family too soon. Luckily for everyone, he survived this and went on to make a recovery.

Unfortunately in June 2017 he was diagnosed again with cancer in a number of areas, all secondary to the original cancer he had. He is still fighting this battle but the research that is being carried out has allowed him to see 3 of his sons get married and meet his 6th grandchild and newest addition to his daughter’s family.

Running the London Marathon has always been something that I have wanted to do, so it is with great honour, on the 28th April 2019, I get to achieve this lifelong goal whilst running for such a great cause!

Your donation will help Bowel & Cancer Research achieve even more. Donating is easy, quick and secure.

Please share with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter – and elsewhere – so I can reach my target and together we can help Bowel & Cancer Research do more. Thank you! Karen Woodford
