My lovely and brave cousin, Laura, was diagnosed with stage 4 Melanoma in August 2019. She has undergone regular immunotherapy treatment, a relatively new treatment, followed by Nivolumab monotherapy during the past two years. In July 2021 Laura had a scan to show the treatment had worked! There was no visible evidence of active disease. Without the research and work from charities such as Melanoma UK this amazing news would not be a reality. In addition to this, throughout her treatment the Melanoma UK online support has been a huge comfort to Laura.

I am so grateful for the positive work Melanoma UK do and I hope others will benefit from the treatment and support they need.

Thank you for your kindness and support of my virtual marathon in 2020 and running the London Marathon 2021.
