I began running a year ago to get fit and to help with postnatal depression. During this time my friend Louise has been fighting various cancers. She has always put on a brave face and was determined for it not to get the better of her... sadly it returned with a vengeance and her treatment is no longer working. Louise should be celebrating her 40th birthday in August, but she is now being cared for by her parents for the weeks/days she has left.
Louise is a wife and a mum, her 6 year old son Louis has watched his mum gradually deteriorate over time and does not know if his kiss good-bye is going to be his last.
On 26th May I'll be running the Edinburgh marathon and I'd really like to raise some money for a local (Bristol) charity called 'The Rainbow Centre for Children' https://rainbowcentre.org.uk
They support children and their families with bereavement through counselling, workshops and family fun days.
Louise has been a real inspiration to me - I think about her every time I run and although she may not know it, we will complete this marathon together.
Thank you for your time, support and any donation you would like to make.
Supporting children and families affected by bereavement and life threatening illness.
