Conor’s half marathon for teenage cancer trust!

Sadly In February this year I was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma a rare type of blood cancer that’s effects teenagers and young adults and was in the worst state of my life both physically and mentally. Accepting I had cancer and getting over the fear of staying alive was the hardest thing to do. I would have never been able to do this on my own and through the support of my family and close friends I am alive today. When I was diagnosed I had to stay in hospital for a few weeks to start my chemotherapy and get multiple tests done. During the time I stayed in the teenage cancer trust ward B7 in the Beatson. The treatment I received there was unbelievable, they made me feel like family and cared for me every minute of the day during those 2 weeks in hospital. At first when I went into full remission I wanted to forget I ever had cancer and move on with my life but after a few weeks of thinking this would be so selfish of me to forget about the people who saved my life. So on December 30th I will be attempting to run a half marathon (20k) to raise money and awareness for teenage cancer trust. This will be extremely difficult but I want this to prove to everyone that in life no matter the struggles you face whether that be mental or physical that life will get better and staying positive and appreciating every day of life is the best mindset to have. Any amount of money or a share of this post would mean a lot to me. The link to the go fund me will be in my bio thank you .
