TCS London Marathon 2024

I'm taking part in the TCS London Marathon as part of #TeamStroke

I joined #TeamStroke for the TCS London Marathon 2024.

There are over 1.3 million stroke survivors in the UK, with 100,000 strokes happening in the UK each year. That's one stroke every five minutes.

We're here to support people to rebuild their lives after stroke. We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke, so we work with the stroke community to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support. We rely on your support to provide vital services, campaign for better stroke care and fund research into preventative and rehabilitative treatments.

In memory of my mum....

Saturday 23rd Sep

I'm taking part in the TCS London Marathon as part of #TeamStroke

On Easter Sunday in April 2021 my mum  had a devastating stroke. Working in her garden on that bright morning she suddenly felt unwell and collapsed. Even though emergency treatment was FAST thanks to dad, mum's stroke meant drastic changes to her life.

Bedbound, from loss of right side movement and dysphasia and  meaning being aware of everything but not able to fully communicate, as well as issues swallowing, was only the tip of challenges that mum faced from that day onwards. I will forever be in awe of the strength and courage that she showed, spending months in hospital and rehab isolated because of covid. Then coming home to a whole new life and care frustrated by the limitations of the stroke.

I have always wanted to run the London Marathon so applied to do so for the Stroke Association to raise awareness and money, to support victims post stroke who may not have the support of others, to which my mum was very fortunate. It will also help the association campaign for better stroke care and fund research into preventative and rehabilitative treatments whilst also, making my mum proud.

I applied for the marathon never telling mum, waiting to see if I was successful in the ballot. Unfortunately another bout of aspirational pneumonia hit her in early August 2023 and she passed away peacefully in hospital. The confirmation of my place arriving a few weeks later.

I am more determined than ever to reach the finish line of this great event, the strength and determination coming from the inspiration of my mum ..... a warrior !
