In June 2023 I was diagnosed with papillary carcinoma of the thyroid, having discovered a lump in my neck a few months earlier.

My treatment involved a total thyroidectomy and neck dissection, treatment has gone well and I want to raise awareness of thyroid problems to give back for the care I received. Thyroid problems can lead to fatigue and low energy levels which is something I experienced.

Doing a run gives me something to work towards and get back to where I was, whilst raising funds for the British Thyroid Foundation.
