Kelly first suspected she might have an issue when she found herself becoming breathless when going for a run. The cause of her breathlessness was a suspicious thyroid nodule and she subsequently had a partial thyroidectomy.

Kelly said: The Great South Run is the longest run I’ve completed post-surgery. I chose to support the
BTF as they provided me with information and reassurance. They also helped me understand why I needed treatment. I will
continue to spread the word about the BTF as they have been such a support to me.

Kelly raised £100 for the BTF
