Amy Lomax has completed an incredible 6 ultramarathons through her ‘Running for Hannah’ Challenge – for her friend Hannah, who is battling bowel cancer.
In April 2017, Hannah was diagnosed with Stage 4 bowel cancer which metastasized to her ovaries and peritoneum. She underwent surgery and chemotherapy at North Hampshire Hospital and The Royal Marsden Hospital. All the treatment worked, and scan results were clear. But in March 2019, it returned, and Hannah is now starting some new treatment, immunotherapy, to manage the disease.
Inspired by Hannah to never stop hoping, Amy wanted to do something positive and show her support, and she did this by completing her challenge – 6 ultramarathons spelling out the name of her friend.
