Fundraising challenge for the GPs at Elmwood

Posted by:  - Posted on:

As NHS GPs we help diagnose and support many patients with cancer. We are extremely moved by that experience and were none more so than when our practice HR Manager Sue was diagnosed with advanced bowel cancer in 2021. Her bravery and positivity in the face of adversity were beyond compare and having said good-bye to her late last year we pledged to do something positive to remember, and celebrate, her great life.

With that in mind, 3 of our GP Partners from the practice, Dr Eloise Collins, Dr Cameron Irving and Dr Gareth Price are running the Manchester Marathon in April this year, to raise vital funds for Cancer Research UK.

Cancer Research UK are the leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research, influence and information. In the last 40 years their research has helped double cancer survival in the UK. Today, 2 in 4 people survive their cancer for at least 10 years.

Most of us know someone, often very close to us, who experiences a diagnosis of cancer and the subsequent journey. Your support for this fundraising effort would help make that journey so much easier for so many.
