Some of you will know that Rachel Waters will be running in the Bath Half Marathon on 11th March. Rachel will be running to raise money and awareness for the charity CLIC Sargent.
CLIC Sargent is a charity in the UK that was formed by the merger of Sargent Cancer Care for Children and Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood in 2005. The charity specializes in providing support for children with cancer.
CLIC Sargent aims are:
- to help as many children and young people as possible survive cancer and make the most of their lives
- to help the whole family cope with the trauma of cancer, life after treatment and, in some cases, with bereavement
- to make sure that young people with cancer and their families can speak out about their needs and get involved in how they are met
Rachel, from Lerryn, is a teacher at Fowey Community College where a young pupil, Anna Howe, 14, is currently undergoing treatment for Leukaemia. Anna, as many of you will know, is the daughter of Lostwithiel GP, Dr W Howe.
