Every 2 minutes someone receives the devastating news they have cancer. There were an estimated 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK in 2015 and this number is expected to rise to 4 million by 2030.
Almost 2 in 3 Brits have a family member or close friend with cancer. Worryingly around a third of people do not feel confident about providing the person or people they know with cancer with emotional support .
The Acorn Cancer Support Group’s aim is to help alleviate the physical and emotional distress of cancer patients and their carers.
It is expected that the London Marathon will reach £1bn in fundraising this year! Please sponsor me to run 26.2 miles providing the Acorn Cancer Support Group with a percentage of this total. The full total gathered on this website goes to this charity.
Every little donation will help.
