Christian and Adam are Brothers who are doing the Virgin Money London Marathon this year together. They’re running for Macmillan Cancer Support in memory of their dear Mum Diana who sadly passed away from Pancreatic Cancer last January.
Their Mother had been ill for a year or so and after many check-ups she was finally diagnosed with Cancer . This was devastating for her and her family and the worst was still to come. After just a month of being diagnosed Diana sadly lost her battle – on Adam’s birthday. This was a shock for everyone and Christian and Adam said “Macmillan helped us to recognise the warning signs and they provided heartfelt honesty. They told us what to expect.”
Diana’s boys are turning such a shocking event in their life into something positive by training and running the Virgin Money London Marathon together, they’re hoping to run it in under 4 hours and have set a target of raising £5,000 for Macmillan. When asked what they imagine they’ll feel like when they cross the finish line their response was “we hope we made our Mum proud.”
