I am a Pseudomyxoma Survivor! I was diagnosed in May 2018 and underwent life changing surgery and chemotherapy. From that moment I knew my life would be different and I wanted to make the best of every moment I have. So…. I set myself some goals and challenges… one of them was to run!

I don’t like running. I never have! I find it quite dull, BUT, give me some motivation and a challenge and I’ll do it!

The London Landmarks Half Marathon (LLHM) was something I would never have thought of entering before! I’d only ever ran 10k in distance and did that 9 months after surgery! But this was a challenge I wanted to do! I wanted to take part as I wanted to support Pseudomyxoma Survivor. The charity was my driving force throughout my training and it kept me going.

Pseudomyxoma Survivor helped support me through my diagnosis and recovery. Without the charity I wouldn’t have been able to put one foot in front of the other. They showed me there is life after cancer and I can continue and dream about the future. Due to the postponement of the half marathon as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, I have been running 5k each week instead to show support to those that have sponsored me so far and continue to raise awareness of the charity and the cancer!

If you’d like to show me your support, my fundraising page is here – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/stacey-broadmeadow1 and  you can find out about Team PMPS LLHM here – https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/PMP. Thank you ?

Why you should see a PMP specialist

Why you should see a PMP specialist

I can’t say it enough… are you dealing with a PMP specialist? If not, I would say you must.

They are the ones that have seen this stuff and the weird things it does. They can give better ideas as to what to do.
In my case, waiting seemed the best option at the time but with the specialist’s input, I chose to go ahead and now, even with the debt, the new body norms and everything, I am sooooo glad I followed his advice! He would have told me to watch and wait if in his experience there was a low risk. And I would have done it.
