Mark Farrar is celebrating 10 YEARS of remission from a malignant brain tumour, by running the 20 miles of brutal off-road running, known as The Grizzly, that he was signed up to run on the day that he lay in his hospital bed a decade ago!
"Six weeks of radiotherapy treatment at Velindre Cancer Centre left me feeling tired, physically drained, and not wanting to eat or do anything at all. My hair fell out and all I wanted to do was sleep. Then my Oncologist told me that it would be okay for me to go out and do a bit of running again, so I did! That felt like a massive lift in my recovery - a feeling of being well again!"
What another amazing story of a Victory Over Cancer! You can support Mark's celebratory fundraising, at his online donations page here, where Velindre is one of two charities benefiting from Mark's wonderful efforts!
Good luck for the race Mark!
