With incidence rates of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer at an all-time high and with a dramatic shortage of dermatologists in the UK we are not sitting on the side lines, Ian and I are running the London Landmark Half Marathon to raise much needed funds for Melanoma UK.

Ian has personal experience as his wife was diagnosed with malignant melanoma and Melonoma UK were very supportive. With the benefit of early identification thankfully she has made a full recovery.

Melanoma UK is taking the public on a journey to ‘find the missing melanomas’ and we want to help them raise money so that they can equip as many skin cancer specialists as possible in the local area with the necessary tools to identify skin cancer early and ultimately save lives.

For every £500 raised, Ian and I will be able to buy a dermatoscope so we are a mission to keep hitting that target and really make a difference.
