On Sunday 28th April, Nicola Roper will be running the Virgin Money London Marathon for the 3rd time.  She is raising money for the Mouth Cancer Foundation in honour of her best friend Kerry who battled tongue cancer in 2018.   

Thankfully, Kerry is cancer free.  However, the treatment Kerry and her family endured to rid her of her of her cancer was brutal.  The physical and psychological effects of what she went through will stay with her and many of those who supported and cared for her forever.

In order to turn this experience into something positive Kerry would like there to be much more awareness of this little-known cancer.   Kerry was just 43 when she was diagnosed with cancer of the Tongue which goes to show it can affect anyone.   Nicola hopes that by supporting Kerry in this way and putting herself through a tiny bit of discomfort, as she runs those 26 miles, will go some way to show her what absolute awe and respect she  has for her for the way she has dealt with this horrendous point in her life.
