Together we walk!

This year's Marsden March marks nearly 7 years for me of living with cancer and over 5 with Stage 4 cancer.  It’s a huge milestone & I’m incredibly thankful to my medical team at the Royal Marsden for keeping me going!  I’m fortunate to be frequently scanned, closely monitored and on a long term chemo regime.  Any changes are picked up quickly and the plan tweaked.  My latest scan shows some progression so it's an op for me next week and back onto the chemo train asap.

This last year has also thrown some new curveballs.  Two lovely pals, Cathy and Sarah, who have supported me many times on the walk have themselves become Royal Marsden patients this year.  It's tough knowing what they have had to face but they too have had superb care and are moving forwards.  They’ve been treated at the new Oak Centre funded by the Marsden charity.  It's an extra incentive for our team to raise money for research, access to new drugs and bespoke treatment paths. 

Please get in touch if you’re able to join ‘Team Debbie & Friends’ walking between the two Marsden hospitals on Sunday 12th May . There's a 5 mile or 15 mile option with lots of chat & pitstops en route.  Alternatively if you’re able to make a donation please click on the 'Donate' link above.

Many thanks as always.
