Thoughts from the FaceBook Page… Feb 23 2019.

Hello. As some of you may have read, I will be running the Bath ½ marathon in March. I will be running this with a bunch of other great people from the office where I work and we are running in aid of the Brain Tumour Charity.

I will be attempting to race 13.1 Miles for the first time in several years and off the back of double Achilles tendonitis. Please show your support by donating a little to the charity…

You can help me raise money for this great cause by donating directly to my office’s fundraising page – https://www.justgiving.com/Bath-Half-Marathon-March-2019.


From The Brain Tumour Charity:

These brain tumour statistics are shocking. We believe that fighting brain tumours on all fronts through research, awareness and support is the only way to save lives, reduce long-term disabilities and help everyone with a brain tumour and their families.

THE STATISTICS:

· Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40.

· Almost 11,000 people are diagnosed each year with a primary brain tumour, including 500 children and young people – that’s 30 people every day.


The New Health Outlook Show.

· Over 5,000 people lose their lives to a brain tumour each year.

· At least 102,000 children and adults are estimated to be living with a brain tumour in the UK currently.

· Brain tumours reduce life expectancy by on average 20 years – the highest of any cancer.

· Just 19% of adults survive for five years after diagnosis.

· Brain tumours are the largest cause of preventable or treatable blindness in children.

· Research offers the only real hope of dramatic improvements in the management and treatment of brain tumours.

· Over £500m is spent on cancer research in the UK every year, yet less than 2% is spent on brain tumours.
