Gemma conquers the London Marathon

Gemma Jones and Team Iuan have already raised an incredible £3,500 for BTRS and Harry's Star. But they haven’t stopped there and on 23 April, Gemma took on the London Marathon!
 

Gemma’s son, Iuan, was diagnosed with a brain tumour on the 10th September 2014. After a total of 5 surgeries, less than 50% of the tumour had been safely removed.
 

It has been a tough journey for Iuan and his family, but they remain positive and are a total inspiration.
 

Following Gemma tackling the London Marathon she said 'I thought I was fairly well prepared and didn't think I would have much issue completing as long as my knees didn't get too painful but after standing around in the sunshine huddled together with 1000s of other runners I was toooo hot! I felt sick from the 3rd mile. I normally start feeling the tiredness around 13-15th mile but I literally couldn't see how I was going to finish as I couldn't cool myself. Anyway I did it!

 
I was told  "When your legs can no longer  run, run with your heart" Thinking about what Iuan and our friends have gone through and are going through, there was not a thing in the world that was going to stop me from crossing the finish line! So grateful for everyone's love and support.'

A huge well done Gemma, you are a real inspiration!
