After graduating from university I joined the Royal Marsden as a physicist in the MRI department and I saw first hand all the amazing work done by everyone there. Then my career path changed and I left to follow another route.
In 2020 however, I was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer and underwent surgery, 16 rounds of chemotherapy, reconstructive surgery and recovery (all in the north west with the incredible support of my family). I am now back in London and whilst I have never forgotten my days at the Royal Marsden, I have now seen both sides of the work being carried out by this wonderful hospital and I wanted to find a way to say thank you to everyone who has helped me through the very difficult times of these last three years.
I’d heard about Le Cure and the extraordinary research it was funding but, being a complete novice cyclist, I never imagined I would ever take it on myself. But things change and this is my little way of saying that very big thank you. I have no idea whether I will be able climb every mountain but I am going to try!
Thank you for supporting me in any way you can in this next big challenge. Le Cure is entirely self funded so every penny raised goes to fund the Royal Marsden’s vital work for breast cancer.
I will be thinking of you all as I power / crawl up those cols!
