Dr. John Doddy Runs the London Marathon

Dr. John Doddy is running the London Marathon this Sunday 23rd April for Breast Cancer Research .

50, 000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed every year . One in eight of all women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime . 1,000 women die every month from breast cancer .
The good news is that the 10 year survival rate in the 1960s was 17% , whereas now 74% of women diagnosed today would be expected to be alive in 10 yrs.
Breast cancer robs mothers of the chance to see their children grow into adulthood and grandchildren of the opportunity  to enjoy the company and wisdom of grandparents .
I remember holding my own mothers hand in the 1980s as she died of breast cancer . Her one wish was to see her son qualify as a doctor . She never did.
