About this cause

About our cause

Children with Cancer UK is my chosen charity, their work involves funding the research into the causes, preventions and treatment of childhood leukaemia and other childhood cancers. They are determined to try and discover the causes and cures, as well as provide care and treatment for those children who are unfortunately suffering this life threatening illness, ultimately working to give children a better chance. Running the marathon, for as long as I can remember has been by goal, and this year I have finally decided now is the time. Not only am I running the marathon for personal reasons, but also for charity. I have chosen to run for Children with Cancer UK. The reason for this is because back in high school I knew two people who died of cancer. It was heartbreaking seeing close friends and family going through the pain of loosing a young loved one, and the fact that no child should have to suffer the pain and consequences of such an illness. Children should enjoy their lives and not worry about having to deal with illness and pain, instead they should be out with their friends, gaining an education and look forward to planning their future and what they want to do long term, not rushing through life to get things done before their time is up.There is so much technology and knowledge that has helped save many children by ensuring they have received the right care, treatment and support in the process of prevention, but there is still no cure. However with the money raised we get one step closer in finding it. It might not be in this generation the cure is found, but maybe in the next, which could possibly be our children or grandchild, it will be good to know that the donations made today will help for the future children, to ensure that they are given the right care, treatment and support to hopefully live and fulfill their life. Its a tough target to reach but with your help, it will help in the funding of new technology and equipment as well as the much needed care for the children and the search for a cure.
