Thank you very much to Julie Humphrey who ran the Bristol Half Marathon on the 25th September 2016. Julie decided to raise money for Pelican and take on this challenge because her sister Lisa was treated for Pseudomyxoma by Mr Faheez Mohamed here in Basingstoke. Lisa underwent a very long operation that involved cytoreductive surgery. She has had an excellent recovery and was able to cheer Julie on, on the day.
Julie completed the course in a very impressive time of 2hrs 22 mins despite getting drenched just 3 miles in. The sun did shine as she crossed the finish line and she was cheered on by her husband, sister and brother in law. Julie has raised a very impressive £602 to support our work in curing below-the-belt cancers. Her tremendous support will ensure we can help many more patients just like her sister Lisa through our research and training courses.
