Final Total

We are delighted to announce we raised a mammoth £4,775 in this years Great Manchester Run for our chosen charity The Christie in Manchester who are at the forefront in the battle against cancer.

The Story

After our amazing total of £6,800 back in 2015 for prostate cancer we decided to raise money once again for a great cause.

One of our runners this year is our Commercial Director who was recently treated at the Christie Hospital.

“I was diagnosed with cancer of appendix and had the below treatment in Feb 2016 on World Cancer Day.” Julian Stansfield.

CYTOREDUCTION WITH HIPEC

  • Cytoreductive surgery is often paired with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) to effectively remove peritoneal mesothelioma from the abdomen and increase the average life expectancy of patients.
  • Cytoreductive surgery is a surgical procedure used to remove tumors from patients with peritoneal mesothelioma. When it’s paired with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), it considerably increases life expectancy and reduces the rate of cancer recurrence.

We chose the Christie Hospital as our charity this year to raise funds for as Julian wanted to repay them for the treatment & care he received.
