always in my heart
Edinburgh marathon in loving memory of Karen
Running a marathon is something I've always wanted to challenge myself to do. Fitness levels not being what they should be has stopped me in the past but after bagging a half marathon last year I've decided it's now or never. I've also always wanted to raise funds for the Beatson as it's a charity close to my family's heart. This year I'm doing both and running the Edinburgh Marathon to raise funds in memory of my sister Karen. They say cancer will affect us all at one point in life but you don't really expect it to happen to your own family. Karen was only 32 when she was diagnosed with cancer, I remember the day she told me like it was yesterday. I was devastated but Karen was so brave and determined to fight it all the way I was sure she would be ok. Karen attended the Beatson Cancer Centre for her treatment and was so grateful for the help she received there that she wanted to repay the staff by doing her own fundraising, unfortunately she became very weak and just didn't have the strength. Karen passed away on 17th July 2011 and although the pain I felt that day remains I now think of Karen everyday with a smile, she was the best sister I could've asked for. Please help not just me in my Marathon challenge but help my whole family repay the Beatson by raising funds in memory of Karen. Also please feel free to add any memories or pictures you have of Karen to the page as I would love to have more pictures of her. Many thanks David.
