As some of you know, I lost my father to cancer five years ago, and now my mother is fighting against it.

Both of them have had huge support from the local community nursing fund, who exist to provide the terminally ill and the families with support and assistance in their own homes. It's funded from charitable donation, and my brother is abandoning his over-paid city boy ways to run the London Marathon partially in aid of this charity.

If any of you would like to support him, the money would be gratefully recieved.
