‘September 2017 represents ten years since I was diagnosed with stage 3C ovarian cancer. Only 10% of women with stage 3C ovarian cancer are still alive ten years after diagnosis. I believe that I pretty much owe my life to The Royal Marsden.

‘My first contact with The Royal Marsden was in 1999 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 35. Eight years later, in September 2007, I...

“I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer in November 2015 and had a lumpectomy, six sessions of chemotherapy and four weeks of radiotherapy at The Royal Marsden.

“It’s very daunting when you’re first diagnosed as you don't know what to expect but I was so lucky with my chemo nurses as they gave me tips along the way - I never checked out the internet and I didn't really change my life...

I first started running alongside him and we enjoyed many years of Saturday morning runs. This year I will be running the London Marathon in his memory....

“I was diagnosed with bowel cancer when I was 27. I was sent to The Royal Marsden and was the first patient in the country to go on the Wait and See Trial which used imaging, chemotherapy and radiotherapy rather than surgery.

“After a three-month course of chemotherapy, the tumour had shrunk. I then had radiotherapy and, due to the intensity of the treatment, I was told that I would be left...
