London Marathon 2024

Why I’m fundraising...

On June 16th, 2022, my best friend Johannah, aged 42, passed away after four years living with stage 4 ovarian cancer. Leaving behind a beautiful little girl, loving friends, and a wonderful family. 

Johannah was a one in a billion kind of women, if you met her, you never forgot her. The pain of her absence is at times unbearable, I've not only lost my best friend but my sister.

 

Tragically, like many women, her symptoms went miss diagnosed, until a stage 4 diagnosis.

Johannah was an advocate for raising awareness, through target ovarian cancer, and target ovarian cancer was her chosen charity.

 

As we approached the first-year anniversary of Jo's passing, earlier this year, I felt like I need to channel my grief into something that could help even one other women. I was thinking about running the Manchester half marathon, for target ovarian cancer next year, but I thought let's see what Target Ovarian cancer has scheduled, and then I found the London Marathon and I though well it's go big or go home - I want the world to see me, my giant ovaries, and highlight Target Ovarian Cancer - so women around the world will know what signs to look for, and raise awareness of the training needed for medical professions, so missed diagnosing can start to decrease. 


Johannah should still be with us, with me, being outrageous, being daring, being fun, but she's not, and if I can help in some way to raise awareness then I know she would be proud. 

Target Ovarian Cancer is the UK's leading ovarian cancer charity working to improve early diagnosis, fund life-saving research and provide support to women with ovarian cancer.

Awareness of ovarian cancer is low, its share of UK research funding has dropped and three quarters of women with ovarian cancer say they do not get the support they need.

Together we can make sure women in the UK have the best chances of survival and get the right support at the right time, in a way that's right for them.

Raise awareness. Fund research. Save lives.
